Have you spotted pale pink strawberries on your social media feeds? While you might think they’re unripe, they’re not! These berries are called Florida Pearl® Strawberries.  They’re a pale pink-and-white strawberry variety with bright red seeds. This type of strawberry has been popular in Japan for years and can often be seen in aesthetically pleasing bento boxes and pastries in Japanese bakeries.

The texture of Florida Pearl® Strawberries is a little bit softer than red strawberries, and the flavour is characterised by low acidity and a subtle pineapple aroma. Just like regular strawberries, Florida Pearl® Strawberries can be eaten raw. You can snack on these berries, add them to smoothies or desserts and bakes.
