Hula Berries Are This Year’s Gardening Trend

In 2020, it seemed like everyone was gardening, and that trend appears to be continuing. This year, however, a new hybrid fruit called hula berries is all the rage. But what the heck are they?

A hula berry looks a bit like an inverted strawberry. It has white skin and red seed pods, and it’s about the same shape as a strawberry with the same green leaves.

The most unique thing about them, however, is that they allegedly taste like pineapple. And no, they’re not genetically engineered—these babies are all natural.

Unfortunately, hula berries aren’t available at grocery stores, but you can get the seeds at big-box stores, like Walmart, or on Amazon and grow your own. You’ll need to plant them with strawberries to ensure cross-pollination.

Just plant three hula berry plants to every strawberry in rich soil and make sure they receive plenty of sunlight. If you plant your berries in May or June, you can expect fruit come July.

For those who want to grow something a bit more traditional, you can grow these foods from seeds you probably already have in your kitchen.
