This New Strawberry Is Yellow & Tastes Like Pineapples

Wow... Why ever change a perfect red strawberry for a pale imitation? And by the way, I second the previous comment on Driscoll strawberries. I try to avoid them whenever I can. One large company has taken over production and distribution (Murray's cheese has rebranded all cheese at Kroger, Dole is making inroads in frozen fruit and Ocean spray managed to overtake most cranberry producers.) The Driscolls must be a hybrid bred for color and size and the taste be damned- I'm looking at YOU tomatoes!) This is a very poor product and compares unfavorably to other California strawberries available at my smaller grocers. Beware if you don't want tasteless white centered strawberries. Food 52- why so silent on this? I thought you were about fine cooking, no?
