Pineberry seeds

If you see Pineberry seeds for sale do not buy them. Pineberries cannot be grown true from their seeds because they’re a hybrid. If you try to grow from seeds, you’ll probably end up with an ordinary red strawberry plant. You can purchase pineberry plants both in the USA and UK

You’ll be happy to know that pineberries grow well in open ground as well as in containers. I have them growing in my allotment garden and in this DIY Strawberry Pallet Planter at home. Further tips on growing them include:

To get started I recommend that you get a hold of bare-root plants or even better, plants created from runners. I got mine from a friend since pineberries, like strawberry plants, freely throw out runners that create baby plants.

Pineberries grow well in both the garden and in pots

This is the third year that I’ve grown white strawberries, made famous in Britain as the ‘Pineberries’ sold at Marks & Spencer. When they were first introduced you couldn’t beg, borrow, or steal plants and everyone wanted to grow them. Pineberries, Fragaria x ananassa, are special in that they grow in much the same way as ordinary strawberries except they produce small white berries instead of red. The berries also have a slightly citrusy flavor which is why they’re said to taste like a combination of strawberry and pineapple.

You might have heard that one of the benefits of growing these white-skinned berries is that animals don’t think that they’re ripe and won’t eat them. This is only partially true since slugs are a big problem. Keeping the plants mulched and removing any rotten berries helps to minimize this. Try to reduce the slug population around your plants by using beer traps, organic slug pellets, or picking them off manually.
