What’s shaped like a strawberry, looks like peppermint, and tastes like a pineapple? It’s a pineberry, naturally! Introduced to the U.K. market within the last couple of years, these shall we say…chromatically curious strawberries originate in South Africa, where Dutch farmers have been growing the previously wild variety in greenhouses.
Their availability in the U.S. is limited at the moment, but who knows? If The Telegraph is right about their growing popularity, we just might see them in the local supermarket as 2012 plays out. — MN
