    Strawberries are for sure my favourite fruits! Are they yours? When I was surfing the Internet I found some useful and interesting facts about them. Maybe some of you will be surprised and some will find something for themselves here! Did you know that there is a strawberry which tastes and smells like a pinapple? You can guess what its name! Of course it is PINEBERRY. Its fruit is white and red colored and get size to 2,5 cm. Have you ever eaten them? I am thinking about buying a seedling!

    I've never tasted or, in fact, heard of them Ann but would be interested to see how they grow for you. I hope you can get a seedling and have it produce fruit for you.

    I saw these at my local garden center the other day. Looks interesting. Expensive seedling though! Exotic.

    I've tried growing those a couple years ago in containers. It seamed rather finicky but I also didn't have adequate sun so it didn't do much in the way of fruit. Give it a shot. If you give it what it needs, it may do well for you.

    I have heard of them and seen them in catalogues but have never tried them.
