The next time you walk through your local grocery store’s produce department, you might see something new. Did you just see a ghost? There is no reason to be alarmed, you just saw Wish Farms’ fifth berry! We call it, a Pink-A-Boo Pineberries Ripe and ReadyTM and they are grown right here at our company owned farm in central Florida!
The berry itself is very similar to a red strawberry but has a few interesting characteristics (like its white color) that are achieved through natural breeding techniques (non-GMO). That first bite might surprise your tastebuds with its hint of pineapple flavor. After all, that is why the variety is called a Pineberry! We call it a Pink-A-Boo because just a hint of pink blush peeks through when the berry is fully ripe.
This unique relative to the strawberry originated in Chile in the 1700’s. They have grown in popularity in Europe and are now starting to gain popularity here in the U.S. Wish Farms is always looking for the next big thing in the berry world, and we think we found it. Our farmers and harvesters are experts at packing the best berries, and they are committed to picking Pink-A-Boos at their peak ripeness. Give them a try because we think you will love their unique and refreshing tropical flavor!
