'Pineapple' was introduced in 1988 by Ison's Nursery. Plant patent #7266, July 10, 1990. The listed pedigree is 'Fry' x 'Senoia'.


We have only evaluated 'Pineapple' in an informal way. The berry size is likely too small for use in the commercial market, and the vine overproduces in many years, resulting in poor quality. The striking feature of this cultivar is that it has a pineapple flavor. This is more a hint of pineapple rather than a strong pineapple flavor, and some times it is more obvious than at others. Because of its overproduction and only average quality I don't recommend planting of this cultivar.
