Buy pineberry 'White Dream' pineberry White Dream: The juicy and sweet fruits are a taste sensation

This plant is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    During the last summer, a well-known supermarket was selling these delicious and unusual fruits for around 25-30p per berry - and they were still in big demand! Now that the plants are available (they have only recently been released onto the market) you can grow your own. The juicy and sweet fruits are a taste sensation - just like strawberries but with the flavour of pineapple. It is the result of a cross between two different strawberry plants, one from South America and the other from North America. It flowers in May, and provided there is a pollination partner nearby (any normal strawberry plant will do), the fruits will start to appear, green at first but then ripening to white with deep red seeds. Ready to harvest in June, the fruits are rarely eaten by the birds as they do not think they look ripe, so you usually will not need to net them.

  • Garden care: It prefers a sunny spot. In winter, protect the crowns with straw or glass.

Grew them spilling out of an ornate hanging basket. Plenty of fruit and lovely flavour. Looked unusual too and the theory that the birds don't recognise them as ripe fruit because they are white seemed to be true. Plenty of delicious un-pecked fruit! An exciting new addition.




Would recommend


Plant was dispatched after 2 weeks like I was advised. It arrived within a few days of being dispatched. The plant itself looks healthy, nice bright strong green leaves, a good size and strong roots. It was packaged extremely carefully meaning it arrived in perfect condition and the soil was damp so it didn't suffer in the hot weather! It's all repotted now so fingers crossed for lots of yummy berries! I already have a pineberry which is currently flowering and can already see buds on this one!




Not sure I would buy again


Looked forward to trying this and, although it thrived and put out loads of runners, no fruit appeared




Never got any strawberries


A poor novelty variety not worth growing


North Somerset



The plants were well packaged and healthy when they arrived. I had ordered them as part of a project that I was completing with my class of Y3 primary pupils. We planted them in the school garden and they were well tended by enthusiastic, budding gardeners. Sadly no fruit was produced.

Hasn't grown any fruit


Hi I've had this plant for over a year and unfortunately it hasn't produced any fruit. I'm sure it's my fault and I haven't done something right! If anyone has any tips please share! However, it is a beautiful plant with lovely white flowers!

When can you plant these .can they be planted in autumn?


Yes, as these are fully hardy, Autumn is a great time to plant.


does it self-polinate?


Hello there For the a good crop of pineberries it is best to have a normal strawberry plant nearby for pollination purposes. Hope this helps.

I bought white dream plants from you,planted as instructed one in greenhouse and two outside. They have all grown very strong plants but no fruit,just3 tiny pink lumps pretending to be fruit! They have all dozens of trailing stalks (with roots) a few of which I have potted up. Would these take the strength from the plants and stop them fruiting ? They all look very healthy otherwise


Hello, It is quite possible that the plants are concentrating their energies on producing leafy growth rather than fruit - particularly if you are using a fertiliser that is rich in nitrogen. If you want to push them into fruit production, then you should be feeding them with a high potash fertiliser such as Tomorite.


Which plants need cloching?

Frost tender plants can be encouraged to grow far more quickly under cloches and one group of plants, the cucurbits, benefit from the extra warmth overnight. This allows them to photosynthesise for longer and squash, courgette and outdoor cucumber plants
