The Silver Florall Award of the earlier this month held Belgium trade fair Florall went to Fragaria ananassa Pineberry original from Hans De Jongh. This white strawberry has the same habit as the ‘traditional’ red strawberries. However, the fruits are smaller in diameter and have a slightly sour/sweet taste that reminds of pineapple. The new variety starts to bloom mid-May and it flowers until the first frost, similar to other everbearing strawberries. According to the jury this variety is innovative because of its color and flavor. It is named in 2012. This year Fragaria ananassa Pineberry original will be introduced on the Belgium market by Dataflor, a nursery which first of all is well-known for its chrysanthemums.
