The pineberry is said to combine the shape and texture of a strawberry with a flavour and smell closer to that of a pineapple.

Discovered wild in South America and rescued from extinction by Dutch farmers, they are now grown in glasshouses. Pineberries start off green, gradually turning paler as they ripen.

They are smaller than most commercially grown strawberries, measuring between 15 and 23mm across - slightly less than an inch.
