They do not attract birds as much as red fruit - so I've heard . And I'm hoping I won't be allergic to them as I'm allergic to strawberries.
Kim E on Mar 26, 2020

I love rare and unusual fruit and vegetables. I have been trying to get this variety of strawberry for three years. I have tried seeds and bare-roots with no luck. Now I???m trying a live plant.
Christina B on May 17, 2019
Great selection and prices.
Jason P on May 8, 2019
Would like to try it because I've read that it is delicious. Also, I prefer everbearing to June bearing.

Something different
PAUL E on Nov 13, 2018
Curious to try
Alice S on Oct 27, 2018
I liked the coloring mostly, but I'm not a big fan of strawberries in general so a strawberry that tasted like a pineapple (or pear as someone said in their review) sounded perfect for me.
KAYLA W on Apr 17, 2018
I grew this in our last house and was sad to leave them behind because they were very tasty. They also create a lot of baby plants, too
Kimberly E on Nov 5, 2017
I am looking forward to trying these. They are going in the top tier of my strawberry pyramid!
Debra G on Jun 8, 2017
Just to have something different in my ozark beauty patch.
Nathan H on May 8, 2017
I was fascinated by the idea of pineapple flavored strawberries.These look like they will be tasty and I thought it would compliment my tribute strawberries quite well. Looking forward to the first berries!
Jay M on Apr 29, 2017
This is rare to me, seems exotic.

enticed by the potential flavor
Evonne P on Jan 27, 2017
I'm trying to figure out what to grow in the desert and know that I love strawberries and they keep coming back year after year. So, this is what I'm going to load up on.
Michele S on Oct 22, 2016
It's unique and I wanted to try it.
Dianne C on Sep 28, 2016
Exotic sounding
Elizabeth C on May 27, 2016
I was genuinely curious about the pineapple and apricot flavored tastes that's gaining popularity in Europe. Since its a rare strawberry variation buying Pineberry plants directly is better than playing the lottery with the seeds and hoping that at least one seed would be a pineberry.
Sharifur S on May 25, 2016
ummmm look at it!
Lisa A on May 12, 2016

greg g on Feb 27, 2021
Hello, are these ever bearing plants? I plan on growing in my temperature controlled greenhouse. I have bananas and coffee growing currently with great success. Thank you.
Paul S on Dec 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes! These are ever bearing. They are also super sweet. Not that bitter sour after tasting June bearing strawberries have. If you make the water or soil a little more acidic it will make them even sweeter and juicier. Mine are grown in soil PH 5.5 so its very acidic but my berries love it and I love berries. Not all strawberries like it that acidic. I would not go above 6.5 on the PH meter tho. Blueberries LOVE 5.0-5.8 soil as well. That's why I plant them together. Plus the taste of a strawberry in the right cheek and a HUGE blueberry in the left cheek makes my eyes water and juices just spill out from between my lips...I LOVE my berry patches.
Should strawberry plant produce this year?
Joel E on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since they make so many runners, I might consider cutting them off the first year to let the plant concentrate on fruit production, Also make sure that the fertilizer is correctly balance for fruiting, as opposed to leaf growth. (Medium Nitrogen and Phosphorus and high potassium).
Should I cover strawberries during winter?
Timmie on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In zone 5 I cover my strawberries with 6-8 inches of leaves, It keeps them from heaving out of the ground if there is a warm period in the winter that lets the ground thaw and re-freeze.
Are the berries genetically modified?
Janis K on Nov 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Janis - We appreciate you reaching out to us. This berry is not genetically modified. The pineberry is from cross breeding, not to be confused with genetic engineering. If you have any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Have a great day!
Sorry for the stupid question, I'm new to this stuff. What's the difference between the 4" plot and the 1 gallon container? Obviously the 1 gallon comes with more, but how many plants is that?
Scott L on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It's not stupid at all. The difference is the root system; the number of plants is the same in each pot. A 4" pot will have a small root system and won't produce a great deal of fruit when it starts bearing. A 1-gallon Pineberry Strawberry will have a very well-developed root system, which means it will transplant better, adapt to its new home more quickly and bear much more fruit after a year (with proper care, of course). In short: The bigger the pot, the less time you have to wait!
When do they start flowering? Mine is still young. Planted close to a month already.
Jana C on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My Pineberry plants did not flower last year, the first year I had planted them. They did
send out feelers to start new plants but did not get flowers and fruit until this year. I don't know where you live but I live in Pennsylvania so maybe that was part of the reason, cooler here. I do have them this year and am waiting on them to get ripe!
How soon can these planted? Would I want to wait until closer to May to get them in the ground?
Carla B on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our WP Strawberries are already growing in this weather from last year, so they are rather tough. You can plant them any time, as long as they are not gong to be planted on an unprotected slope facing north, (in which case, wait 'til May.) Give them a "chill down" by putting them in the garage overnight and then setting them outside with protection like wrapping the pot in a towel and place them in a sunny spot for a few days. Once you plant them, be sure to cover them with a nice fluffy mulch. Make sure the soil where you want to plant them is workable and not soggy. The tops may show transplant stress, (ours did,) and appear to die off, but the roots will still be ready to grow once they get settled in.
Do these produce runners?
Toadlily on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do. I planted mine a couple years ago and they never produced fruit. They are in a bed with other varieties of strawberries which have produced a good crop; not sure why these didn???t. But, to answer your question, yes there are lots of runners.
Hello was just wondering if they were already bloomed or do I have to plant them?
Mia R on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You have to plant them. They do not come in a pot and are shipped bare root. It will take a year or so before you get any fruit.
I got one of these last year and while i had about 5 berries last year, this year I have a ridiculous amount. However, I have noticed something. The ripe berry on mine is not white. It is a dark pinkish red. The berries start out white with pinkish seeds and then darken. Is this typical?
kelley on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine do the same thing. Whether that is typical or not I can't say for sure, but it now seems likely.
Dose this plant grow runners like regular strawberry plants?
Rene B on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes , they do. I bought only three plants to plant in my grape vine enclosure
at the base of my grape vines and the enclosure is at least 10-12 foot long by
4 foot wide and just those3 plants filled in that large of a space. I think they fill in thicker than regular strawberries.

Maribel P on Aug 3, 2020

Is this just one plant, or is there multiple, also how big is the plant?
BERGESON13 on May 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Currently this is only available in the gallon pot and it is 1 single plant, shipping 6-12 inches

Are the Pineberries self pollinating?
Lynn L on Feb 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are partially-self fertile. Planting another strawberry variety nearby will give you lots of pineberries and red strawberries as well.
I live in zone 6 and have planted pineberries last year with no production. They are thriving this year,but I am not sure when to pick them. Any ideas?
Richard G on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They're ready to pick when the outside is white (no green tinge) and the seeds are red.
Can these plants be grown indoors in a pot?
Michael M on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Probably not. You would need the correct temperatures and especially a very strong light source. When blooming, I would hand-pollinate as you probably don't have enough insects in the house to pollinate.
How will pineberrys do in vertical towers in Aquaponics?
David C on Jan 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'll let one of our customers answer your question: "I planted six different strawberry varieties from 4 different suppliers for an outdoor hydroponics garden in Central Illinois including Sparkle Strawberries and I had strawberries on all varieties in about 6 weeks. Not sure how they would do in dirt. Not sure why most folks don't have hydroponic gardens. Plants grow big and fast."
Whg hasn't my pineberry bloomed? It's in the same container with 2 other strawberries that bloomed in April.
Karen J on Apr 24, 2020
I am in a 10b zone but really wanted to try growing these Pineberry Strawberries, would there be anything I could do to better my chances of this succeeding?

Needs Improvement if My Plant is Typical
Disappointed in the plant received. If it grew as many berries as runners would be a fantastic producer. Few berrys and constantly fighting off spreading runners to other parts of the berry patch. If this is typical performance do not recommend.

Fun Fruit
I can't believe how many berries we got in the second season of planting it. Grows real fast. My kids absolutely love them. My 5yr old daughter said "They taste like pears", and I have to agree with her. Make sure you put a fence around it, rabbits like them too. Thanks Stark Bros for the fun fruit!

very strong grower, taste is just ok
I planted 2 last year, which multiplied to at least 30 this year. But the berries were quite small (dime sized), soft, and only ok in taste.
July 11, 2016
I received mine in late June of this year and have already harvested 2 berries, it has grown quite a bit, and is full of blossoms! Very happy with them so far!!

Very pretty!
These were very pretty... the birds ate them last year before I could... but I have netting this year, so I am hopeful.

I took the plants from US all the way to Europe and during the flight they almost died but when I planted them they grew back and now I have a full garden of Pineberry Strawberries :)

They grow so well that soon I'll get out of space.

Even though I planted numerous plants I experienced a 30% plant survival. I plan on relocating to a full sun location this Fall to increase my production. I'm Happy with those plants that survived but need better production. I experienced the same thing with Rhubarb; changed location to another area and now am giving Rhubarb away!
