This little guy is the Pineberry. Looks like a white strawberry, with red seeds but tastes and smells like a pineapple. You can read all about him here: http://bit.ly/bsEpD9 These little wonders are going on sale this spring in the UK. I think it’s cool that there’s this little berry that tastes like a big ol’ pineapple.
It got me to thinking about how we’re all just a big conglomeration of our experiences. Everything, good and bad in our life has brought us to be the person we are today. Pretty deep thoughts to get from a little pineberry. There’s not only the nurture aspect of things but the nature aspect as well. We’re each a hybrid of our parents genes and the generations before them. Okay, I’m not going too far down that road, but you get the picture.
How we deal with our experiences and (maybe to a degree)the influence genetics has over us, determines where we wind up. Whether we a bit more acidic like a tangelo; a tangerine and grapefruit combo. A bit more subtle like the jostaberry; a cross between black currants and gooseberries. Or you could wind up with a sweeter disposition like the grapple; a Fuji apple with Concord grape flavor. Then again, you could be a whimsical mixture of sweetness with a little sour bite in there like a pluot or aprium; both are a cross of plum and apricot. Whatever it is we’re all definitely unique and so is the new kid on the block, the pineberry. What are your thoughts on the mixture you’ve come to be?
