Fruit Oddity: The Albino Strawberry

The “albino version of a strawberry,” pineberries grow in glass houses, start off green and gradually turn white as they ripen. With bright red studs.

According to Wikipedia:

Pineberries were bred from a wild strawberry originating in South America where it grew wild, but was nearly extinct until 2003, when a group of Dutch farmers banded together to save the plant. The Pineberry is said to have the same genetic makeup as the common strawberry.

Apparently, they small extra fruity and actually taste like pineapples. Weird fruit – but I’d love to try it!
