Just a Touch of Blush
A pineberry is like a strawberry, but different. Wish Farms calls them Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries, because they turn a pink blush when they get exposed to the sun and become fully ripe and ready to eat!
Closer Than You Think!
It might not look or taste like it, but pineberries are almost genetically identical to a red strawberry. Just like all of our berries, Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries are non-GMO. The base of the berry is white, and the seeds turn bright red when they are ripe.
Somewhere in South America…
The original white berries were discovered in the wild of South America in the 1700’s. Many years ago, that variety was cross bred by farmers with wild red strawberries from Europe. The descendant of those two varieties is how we got the red strawberries that we know and love to this day. The University of Florida developed pineberries by crossing a Japanese white strawberry and a Florida red strawberry. They are all connected, as they are descendants of the wild white berries discovered many centuries ago!
