Strawberry + Pineapple = Pineberry

[via Slashfood]

I eat a lot of fruit. What do you get when you cross a strawberry and a pineapple? A pineberry, of course.

Pineberries are $4.50 for a 4.5 ounce bag, or about 88 cents per berry.

This designer fruit — a hybrid that looks like a white strawberry with red seeds, but which allegedly smells and tastes like a pineapple — will first be sold in the UK, ABC News reported.

Cross-breeding fruit to create new varieties is a $100 million business in the U.S., ABC News reported.
