Move Over, Pineapple—Here's the Next Trending Fruit

Sophie Miura

Differentiating between types of fruit might seem as elementary as learning the alphabet, but according to Vogue, there are two types of berries you probably didn’t learn in school. Dubbed “designer berries,” these uncommon varieties have a unique appearance and flavor and are set to be huge this spring. Give your fruit salad an upgrade with these unexpected ingredients.


Bearing resemblance to a common strawberry, this bizarre fruit stands out thanks to its milky-white skin and red seeds. Discovered growing wild in Chile, pineberries are often compared to pineapples in flavor and only entered the U.S. market in 2012. 


With its plump, dark red exterior, this easy-to-grow garden fruit is often likened to a raspberry. While it’s said to have been around for over 100 years, the ancient berry is still unknown to many.
