Pineberries

Surprisingly fresh, sweet and decorative

One of the most distinctive strawberry varieties is the pineberry. The fruit is slightly smaller than a strawberry and has a striking colour: white to light pink, with red, deep-set seeds. The surprisingly fresh-sweet taste is reminiscent of pineapple. This decorative beauty performs well in culinary delights.

Growing and harvesting

Handpicked

Just like the deep pink-red variety, the light pineberry was created by crossing two strawberry varieties. Hand-picked pineberries go straight into consumer packaging and are then refrigerated. They arrive at Berries Pride within 24 hours.

Packaging options

Also tailor-made

We supply pineberries in EAT ME packaging (plastic tub of 125 grams) or in custom packaging. The packaging must always meet our preconditions. For example, it must optimally maintain product quality, observe sustainability and look attractive to consumers.

If you would like to discuss options for custom packaging, our buyer Michael Aagaard knows everything there is to know about a good product-market fit.

To continue to respond to the changing market, we will soon be launching a sustainable packaging line for all our berries. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.

Storage advice

For optimal flavour retention

  • Transport Refrigerated storage and transport are essential. Pineberries prefer a temperature between 2 and 4˚C.
