There is a little known strawberry that comes from South America and has recently been snatched back from the very brink of extinction. It is white and has scarlet red pips and is remarkably beautiful. Unlike its cousin the red strawberry it has a flavour similar to a very mild pineapple and so children find it delicious. The wild plant has been rescued and is now being grown and promoted under another name. It is being offered as a ‘pineberry’ – so if you see it advertised and want to do your bit in promoting this rare plant then why not grow one or two in your garden. They are reputed to be hardy and because they are wild they will flourish year-after-year. All they need is a little space – a garden patch; window box; flowerpot; tub. They tolerate semi-shade so let’s all help this little plant and make it popular and more widely known. If you do see it for sale then please leave a little comment here so that we can spread the information and more of us will be able to grow it to make sure that it is not lost from this planet forever. Thank you.
