'Pineberries, or white strawberries, have a flavour reminiscent of pineapple and are predicted to be the hit of the summer.

More than 3,000 plants have been sent to garden centres.

The white fruit which has a very pale pink tinge, appears early and can be ready in May.

Purple Majesty potatoes are also expected to prove popular after 100 tons of seed potatoes were sent to stores.

Experts say the potatoes are high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant which is linked to potential health benefits in treating diabetes, inflammation and age-related disease.

They are also versatile and can be roasted, mashed or made into chips.

Growers report that they are a versatile spud which is ideal for mashing, baking and roasting, and particularly good as chips and crisps.

Both purple potatoes and white strawberries have been supplied before but only in relatively small volumes ...'

They look really pretty. :)

Purple potatoes have been around for a while, I've seen purple mash believe it or not and actually it looks pretty cool, tastes much like any other potato.
