Berry lovers know that the summer months are the peak time to enjoy these candy-like treats from nature. And here we are, with our berry bushes finally blooming. But just when you thought strawberry and raspberry season couldn’t get better, one of the world’s top growers has developed two limited-edition products: Rosé Berries and Sweetest Batch.
The scientists at Driscoll’s developed both the Rosé Strawberry and the Rosé Raspberry as a result of careful, non-GMO plant breeding. By taking different products and combining their traits, these new fruits have taken on the qualities of both parents. In this case, the rosé strawberries and raspberries have a lighter appearance, blushing with this trendy shade of pink.
As for the taste, the rosé strawberry “delivers a sweet, peachy flavor with a soft floral finish,” according to a press statement from the berries’ initial release in 2019. The rosé raspberries, meanwhile, which are developed from golden and red raspberries, are slightly sweeter than your average red raspberry.
Now, for the summer of 2021, the berries are back on shelves and Driscoll’s Twitter feed has been enthusiastically tweeting and retweeting about the rosé berries’ triumphant return to the summertime produce aisle. On June 12, the brand took to Twitter to celebrate National Rosé Day with images of — you guessed it — these pale-pink berries.

In addition to the rosé berries, Driscoll’s also has Sweetest Batch berries available in grocery stores around the country. These berries have been grown for customers who are looking for “high-flavor” berries — including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries — to add to their kitchens.
We can’t wait to try out these new berries in some of our favorite recipes, like Campfire Strawberries and Chocolate-Raspberry Cheese Pie, perfect for summer barbecues or camping in the great outdoors!
These berries can be found in stores around the country, but only for a limited time.
