LOS ANGELES - Summertime is just around the corner, which means fresh berries are ripe for the picking and sipping rose is an all-day activity. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Driscoll's, the popular berry seller, has released a limited-edition collection where you can combine the two summer staples.
Driscoll's Rose Berries were created by its special team of agronomists, breeders, sensory analysts, plant health scientists and entomologists. The "Joy Makers," as this team is called, have spent years to perfect the taste of each variety of berry, and they believe they have finally hit the rose spot.
And to be clear, none of the berries actually contain wine.
Driscoll's Rose Berries are comprised of blush-colored strawberries and raspberries curated for their unique color and flavor. Naturally bred from a mix of dark and light berries, these berries get their beautiful blush hue from non-GMO breeding methods to deliver a sweet peach flavor paired with a floral finish.
For berry lovers looking for an even richer experience, Driscoll's has also released their Sweetest Batch strawberries and raspberries, each grown from one proprietary variety and picked for their extra sweet taste.
"Introducing an immersive berry eating experience with both Rose Berries and Sweetest Batch is a testament to our thoughtful and dedicated breeding process," says Rick Harrison, vice president of global variety development, in a statement. "We don't compromise when it comes to excellence."
It is perhaps this level of precise cultivation and excellence that limits the supply, however.
As of June 12, you can purchase Driscoll's Rose Berries collection at select Whole Foods Market locations across Northern California, as well as on FreshDirect if you're on the East Coast.
