Pineberries are a strawberry derivative that taste like pineapple.

Their arrival is a sure sign that summer is on the way, but 2012 is the year when a new variety of strawberry will be the hit fruit of the season.The Pineberry, a white strawberry with a distinctive tropical flavor reminiscent of pineapple, hit the shops last year but is set to dominate fruit sales this summer.More than 3,000 plants have been sent to garden centers hoping to grow the unusual fruit, which has flesh as white as the cream poured over traditional strawberries.When the fruit is sweet and juicy enough to eat, the flesh is almost totally white but studded with red seeds - the reverse of the usual variety.Experts believe this coming year will see a trend for the strawberries, as well as other unusual veg such as purple majesty potatoes.
