This is my favorite of my 4 varieties of alpine strawberry (the others are White Soul, Red Delicious, and Mignonette red). It does indeed taste like pineapple. I started them from seed this year and they have been fruiting for months. Each plant is about a cubic foot, or a little shorter. I don't see much difference in color between these (supposedly yellow) and the White Soul. They are in raised beds here in zone 6 and require very little care.
