Does anyone know where I can buy pineberry plants in Canada or know an online site that sells and ships them to Canada?

Try thestrawberrystore.com,
I bought from Mike in Delaware (and even visited him) and he sells Pineberries but some may be sold out at this time (check store for stock). Can check with him if he ships to Canada

He may not looking at his front page again ....
Clearly on his front page it says: "We CANNOT ship plants outside the U.S."
His email is mike@thestrawberrystore.com, can just ask yourself. He doesn't bite :). Maybe he can recommend a Canadian resource/friend who grows them.

I have a package of Pineberries coming to my house. Here's the order
1 x Fragaria x ananassa 'White Pine' Bare Root- 3 Plant Bundle BA (HEIRWPBNDL) $16.47
1 x Fragaria x ananassa 'White Carolina' Bare Root-3 plant Bundle BA (HEIRWCBNDL)
Ship Date Best Date for My Area $16.47
---------
Sub-Total: $32.94
Shipping (Priority Mail from BotanicArt ($12.95) (Inc Handling Fee: $3.00)): $12.95
DE TAX Rate 0.0%: $0.00
Total: $45.89

Expensive! The only available cultivars from the Strawberry store. 6 plants 45 bucks!
What I cannot get here is any of the Romance series Cherry trees. I'm looking for Cupid and maybe Romeo or Juliet. I would definitely consider readdressing the package for these trees! Nothing else, I have no interest.
Well I would be willing to duplicate the order, but as everyday goes by, they could sell out. I need the current order. I have 2 White D's planted here also, but no runners yet.

White Pine:
This pineberry is probably the most well known strawberry of this type. It produces a white fruit with red seeds. Fruit exposed to full sun become a blush pink color. The fruit has a very mild flavor with the taste of strawberry and pineapple. Vigorous plant that produces many runners.

White Carolina:
This pineberry is noted in history books about strawberries. It produces a white fruit with red seeds. Fruit exposed to full sun become a blush pink color. The fruit has a very mild flavor with the taste of strawberry and pineapple. Vigorous plant that produces many runners. This variety tends to be susceptible to leaf scorch.

White D (sold out at Strawberry store and Burpees-I have 2 in my garden)

This is one of 3 pineberry varieties that we grow. It has been in existence since the 1700's and was later developed in Sweden. For some pictures of this and other pineberries visit www.pineberries.us.
We are still learning about this variety but it is said to be everbearing which would be a BIG plus. During the summer we are seeing blooms on the runners. The plants are strong growers and the fruit is larger than what we've seen from other pineberries. The fruit is mild with a pineapple flavor and an aroma like we have never experienced. We think this variety is a winner.

Don't have anything of what you are looking to trade but still very interested in getting some plants. Would or could you do another order and re address it? Will check around up here for those varieties of cherries but don't think so. Only thing I know that wimple ask for up my way that people can't get else where is bake ale plants.

RE: pineberry plants

Many Canadian nurseries have the trees, you would have to order them, Cupid alone would be good. You know a price around $45.including shipping to your house, but not shipping to me, that would be even more. Basically I'm asking you to do what you want me to do, readdress a package. I guess you need to find a nursery, I'll look too, but I have to go to work right now...

RE: pineberry plants
