It’s Raining Berries at Foodhall!
Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are the beautiful, jewel-toned fruit we reach for when we want to add a splash of colour to a salad or a touch of acidity to a rich, sweet dessert. But the new variants on our shelves will make you fall in love with berries all over again.
A new species of blueberry has made its debut. Exactly the same shape and size as a blueberry, the pinkberry is bright fuchsia and tastes much sweeter than its slightly sour cousin. Pinkberries are ideal for sprinkling over your pancakes, baking into cakes and muddling into cocktails.
The word ‘pineberry’ is a fusion of the words ‘pineapple’ and ‘strawberry’. These wonders are like inside-out strawberries – pale white and dotted with red seeds. Pineberries are very aromatic with the tropical flavour of a pineapple and the texture of a strawberry.
Strassberries are a variety of strawberries that resembles a raspberry because of their deep-lying seeds. They are a deep ruby-red and are much sweeter than regular strawberries.
