    I've not met them myself, but this person wasn't too impressed http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2010/apr/01/pineberry-strawberry-waitrose image

    They are a hybrid of two strawberry plants. I've read all the reviews on them Dovefromabove and to be honest, there are more positive reviews than negative. I think as long as people don't expect them to be something that they are not lol. I like the idea of growing things that not everyone has... that's why I've chosen to get some to give a try; not only that, I've got 6 plants for 5 pound... which is really cheap for these type of plants!

    I'll post pictures and keep you updated??

    Hi guys, one year later!! and I will post you a picture of the pineberries tomorrow. Doing really well. I have them in my plastic greenhouse and as they are female plants, I am using self pollinating strawberry plants to cross pollinate them to enable fruiting! I've got sooooo many flowers already!!
