A new variety of strawberry will be the hit fruit of summer 2012, Daily Mail reported.
The pineberry, a white strawberry with a distinctive tropical flavor reminiscent of pineapple, hit the shops last year but is set to dominate fruit sales this summer.
When the fruit is sweet and juicy enough to eat, the flesh is almost totally white but studded with red seeds – the reverse of the usual variety. Experts believe this coming year will see a trend for the strawberries, as well as unusual vegetables such as purple majesty potatoes.
