An unusual, hard-to-find strawberry. Plants are vigorous and send out numerous runners. Berries are white, ornately speckled with red seeds, and are a bit bigger than other pineberry varieties. Aroma is outstanding and the pineapple flavor is pleasant and mild. Protect from direct hot sun to keep fruits from developing more pinkish hues. These Pineberries are not self-fertile, they need pollen from a different strawberry variety to produce their distinctive fruit, for best results plant with Fragola di Bosco or Strawberry Purple Wonder.

Fall Planted Fruits
Fall is an ideal time to plant fruit plants. Plants will establish strong root systems and get a jump on spring growth.

Growing Strawberries
Soft succulent strawberries are difficult to find store bought. The answer is to grow your own. See how easy it is.

  • Choose a location with loose, well-drained soil containing plenty of organic matter.
  • Strawberries may also be planted in containers or pyramid gardens, as an edging for flower and shrub borders or in matted beds and rows.
  • To grow in rows, space strawberry plants 18-24 inches apart in rows 3-5 feet apart. Runners will form new plants and eventually form a solid bed.

Planting Bare Root Plants:

  • Soak roots in lukewarm water two hours before planting.
  • Trim roots to 3 inches long and pick off any blossoms or dead leaves.
  • Using a trowel, open a hole large enough to spread roots out without bunching roots.
  • Set plants in the hole so that the crown is level with the surrounding soil line.
  • Press soil firmly against roots.
  • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.

Planting Potted Plants:

  • Make sure the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  • Carefully unpot the plant.
  • Set plants so the crown is level with the surround soil line.
  • Back fill the hole with soil and press soil firmly against the root ball.
  • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.
  • Apply a light mulch to keep weeds down, conserve moisture and keep fruit clean.
  • After harvest, remove old foliage. Be careful not to injure the crowns.
  • Fertilize beds in early summer and again in September with a balanced fertilizer. Do not fertilize if plants are flowering.
  • Watering is very important in early summer and September. 
  • Note that June-bearing plants produce the second year after planting. Cut all runners off during the first year, leave 2-3 runners the second year.
  • Winter protection for all strawberry varieties is important in most northern areas. Apply a mulch of straw or other loose organic matter 2-3 inches deep over the plants after the ground freezes but before the temperature drops below 20 degrees F. In spring, pull the mulch back into the rows.
  • Pick the fruit as it ripens, when fully red.
  • Pick with a short piece of stalk attached.
  • Regular picking will help keep the plants fruiting.
  • Fruits are best eaten straight off the plants, and may be kept for up to a week in the refrigerator if kept dry. They are also easily frozen, or made into preserves.

Strawberry, Pineberry is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from game changer berry I bought six plants this spring, early summer they started to produce a handful of berries, they were absolutely out of this world. I allowed the plants to start running and they produced over 1600 suckers, they are extremely prolific. I planted 1000 of them in late September along with 200 pollinator red strawberry's and they are all doing well. Hope to make a splash with them at the local farmers market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Burpee My daughter was so excited to grow this White strawberry with a pineapple taste. Well we were disappointed that it did not bear any fruit. So I looked online for information. I had to find out from another website that PINE-BERRIES ARE ALL FEMALE plants! No where on Burpee website does it say that you need to have a least two strawberry plants near it so it can pollinate it. So I will now purchase two plants next year from another place. I hope other people read this and are informed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So unique! I love the idea of the white strawberry, and the pineapple taste. And that's just what it is! Delicious and amazing! The first year we got a few delightful white pineberries. Everyone I mention them to is as enchanted as I am. I just wish we had more to share! The second year, the plant is thriving but no berries. I'll have to learn more about growing them so I have more success next year.
