Even though spring has just sprung, the pineberry craze already has people thinking ahead to summer. ICYDK, pineberries are white-colored strawberries that taste like a mix of different fruits, and they also happen to be TikTok’s latest obsession. Luckily for tried and true members of the TikTok-made-me-do-it camp, the fun new fruit is already popping up at retailers nationwide, so if you’re looking for the scoop on where to buy pineberries, ya know, to join the white strawberry trend — I’ve got some answers.
If you’re not up to date on the funky new fruit, here’s what you need to know. Pineberries, also known as white strawberries, are strawberries that feature a white base with hints of pink, and they are covered in red seeds instead of white. It may not look like it (or taste like it), but pineberries are almost genetically identical to red strawberries, according to Wish Farms’ pineberries FAQ webpage.
If you come across a pack of pineberries to buy at the supermarket, they’re likely from Florida-based Wish Farms. The farm has been selling its white strawberries, which they call “Pink-A-Boos,” for a while, but it wasn’t until early 2022 that the aesthetically pleasing (and sometimes overly expensive) fruit started taking TikTok by storm. According to the Wish Farms FAQ page, pineberries get their Instagram-worthy coloring from their low acidity content, and taste like a mix of strawberries, pineapples, pears, and apricots. Basically, they taste like all the best fruits in one.
