Though sometimes mistaken as a genetically modified fruit, the pineberry is actually a fragrant hybrid of the South American strawberry variety Fragaria chiloensis and the North American strawberry variety Fragaria virginiana, which results in a conical white berry with red seeds. You’ll find these soft, juicy berries in small quantities at gourmet grocers and specialty food stores.

Market names: White pineberry, pineberry strawberry, pineapple strawberry
Season: Spring to early summer.
Prep it: Wash just before eating, as moisture will shorten their shelf life.
