Pineberries – White Strawberries with Pineapple Taste?

Have you tried a pineberry, yet? Well, no matter how fast pineberries become popular, there are a lot of people who feel reluctant to buy a pineberry punnet on the market. My grandmother is a greengrocer and she was also reluctant to take delivery of her first order of pineberries.

She was afraid they will remain unsold because people will be reluctant to buy them too, because they aren’t yet not popular on the market or they look like they have gone off a week ago. But, that was not the case. She said that, that same day she sold all of the seventeen punnets and not one was left for her to take at home. In fact, people are interested in these snow-white strawberries. They are really juicy and highly fresh and sweet-smelling.  

But, what is a pineberry?

Yes, it is a fact that people aren’t familiar with a pineberry and its extraordinary benefits. A pineberry or Chiloensis is a product of two strawberry plants, red strawberries from North America known as scarlets and the other from Chile known as Fragaria Chiloensis.  They look like strawberries but, taste like a pineapple, which is why they are named pineberries. The only difference between these two strawberry plants is in their colour and taste and pineberries’ smaller size.

This popular white strawberry (similarly like the red strawberries) has numerous advantages, but people are not familiar with the benefits they could gain from eating these strawberry plants. That is why I took the liberty to write this article on the pineberries (with the help of my grandmother), to help you learn about the unbelievable benefits that will improve your health in general. Keep reading bellow!

The vitamin C is the number one immune system defender and pineberries are the best source of this vitamin. It provides us with a strong foundation for resisting bacteria, flu, cough, germs etc. Eat a handful of them in the morning to get the most of this vitamin.

Pineberries will help you improve your digestion system due to the fact that they are rich in fiber. Fiber is essential if you have guts or metabolism problems. Eating pineberries on an empty stomach is worth trying in order to fix your digestive organs, before getting any medicines.

Don’t freak out if you have found out that your already favourite fruit contains carbs that don’t go with your diet.

This famous white strawberry is high in folate, which is one of the B vitamins recognized for reducing the risk of birth defects. This fruit is recommended for the future moms and for those who are planning to become mothers and the one who breastfeed as well. If you have hypertension during pregnancy, folate is really recommendable.

  1. High protection from cancer disease

Antioxidants are the most important property of all strawberry plants because they stop free radicals from flowing in our body. Pineberries, which are loaded with antioxidants, prevent any type of cell mutilation, mainly the ones that are caused by oxidation. Other benefits of the antioxidants are longer life time and early aging.
