Pineberry Fruit

Pineberry is a hybrid of Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria virginiana. The fruit is very fragrant with a pineapple flavor. Pineberry has been marketed to European restaurants, bakeries and wholesale markets.

Pineberry fruit

Scientific Name:Fragaria ananassa

Pineberry is considered to be smaller than strawberry and said to have the same genetic as strawberry with 15 to 23mm. When the fruits ripen, it becomes white with red seeds. Pine berries start life as green berries, and slightly turn into white. The fruit produced by pineberry plants is very aromatic and has sweet flavor just like pineapple. Pineberries are produced on a very small scale in Europe and Belize. Pineberries are grown in very large and commercial glasshouses.

Pineberry Varieties

  • There are very few Pineberry varieties available such as 'White Pine', 'White Carolina', and 'White D' cultivars.

  • The less stereotypical pineberry variety is White Carolina. Pineberries that are exposed to direct sun will have more clear pink flush and susceptible to leaf scorch. It requires fungicides to control it.

  • White D pineberries were developed in Sweden. This variety is considered to be the most preferred one. The aroma of this kind of pineberry variety is exceptional and the flavor is mild.
