Categories: Small Fruits
This variety was recently released by Dr. Hans De Jongh, a Dutch strawberry breeder, who has worked with old pineberry varieties and traditional breeding practices to increase berry size, yield and overall performance. His work led to the release of this distinct and improved Natural Albino Pineberry®. The Pineberry offers dramatic color, excellent flavor and aroma, and a unique small berry (about the size of a nickel)
The Pineberry is not self-fertile... it needs pollen from a different variety to produce its distinctive fruit. We have chosen a red variety, Sonata Strawberry (U.S. Plant Patent #18,000) for cross pollination. It is another Dutch variety known for its distinctive flavor.
