Growing Pineberries at Wish Farms
Wish Farms Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries are a naturally grown, non-GMO berry developed by the University of Florida using traditional breeding techniques. The variety was officially named “Pearl” by the University. It might not look or taste like it, but pineberries are almost genetically identical to a red strawberry. In fact, the red strawberries we enjoy today were crossed with a white strawberry many years ago.
Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries are grown at our Florida and California strawberry farms, in fields directly adjacent to traditional red ones. Our farmers use the same growing methods as red strawberries and harvest them during the same window of time. In Florida, the pineberry growing season runs from November to April. For California, the pineberry growing season is January to October.
