Not sure this is Fragaria x ananassa or Fragaria virginiana ‘Wonderful Pineberry’.  Cold hardy perennial with edible fruit.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist but well drained rich soil.  Small white flowers in spring to early fall,  followed by edible small, marble sized fruit.  Fruit from green turn white with pink hue when ripe.  Everbearing variety.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.   Fruit taste like strawberry and pineapple combined flavor.  Some people tried and loved it but some tried and said not as good as regular strawberries.   I am not sure why.  Even though I think it could be the plant cares and fertilizer making the differences.  USDA Zones:3-9.  Mature size:3″-1′(H)  X 9″-1′(W).  Propagate by seeds, runner or division.   Suitable for container indoors.

不確定這種是否為’Wonderful Pineberry’.  耐寒強健的多年生草花結可食用果實.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處的濕潤但排水佳的土壤.  春到初秋開單瓣的小白花,花後結白色帶點淡粉紅色的成熟果實.  果實吃起來帶有草莓味混和一點點鳳梨香.   有人覺得很好吃也有人覺得不如一般的紅草莓.  不知道為何試吃結果頗為兩極.  雖說同一物種在不同環境下日照與肥料的供給不同的確是會讓果實的味道不太一樣. 耐寒但不甚耐熱.  成熟株高:3吋到1呎,寬幅9吋到1呎.  繁殖方式可以用種子,走莖或分株的方式來進行.  適合室內盆植.
