White Strawberries

Grown in glasshouses, pineberries start off green, gradually turning paler as they ripen.
When the fruit is sweet and juicy enough to eat, the flesh is almost totally white but studded with red seeds - the reverse of the usual variety.

Discovered wild in South America and rescued from extinction by Dutch farmers...they are smaller than most commercially grown strawberries, measuring between 15 and 23mm across - slightly less than an inch.
The pineberry is said to combine the shape and texture of a strawberry with a flavour and smell closer to that of a pineapple.
