Strawberry Pineberry (Pack of 5)

Only recently released to the market the Pineberry has been in high demand and now you can grow your own! It is a cross between two different types of Strawberry one from South America and one from North America and the fruit produced is a taste sensation! With its succulent, juicy white flesh and red seeds it has the same shape and texture as a strawberry but has a pineapple flavour.

It firstly blooms in May, with delicate white flowers, before the fruit appears, green at first before turning white. Ready to harvest in June, it has the added bonus that birds tend not to eat the berries as they think they’re not ripe! Happiest in the full sun the Pineberry can be grown in a pot if space is limited and is perfect for eating fresh or used in a tasty fruit salad.

Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

These soft fruits will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 4.0 - 6.0 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
