One person commented: "They look weird." Another user added: "I’m dead confused why have I never seen a white strawberry."

While third voiced: "Sound nice but I couldn’t.

"A strawberry is red – end of."

Someone else wrote: "We need to try these but they're kinda freaking me out."

Meanwhile, a fifth shared: "Mind boggled."

The official M&S Instagram page explained: "These are not just any strawberries… these are NEW Collection White Pearl™ M&S strawberries!

"These gorgeous berries have a white base colour even when perfectly ripe, making them look like typical strawberries in reverse!

"They’re sweet like red strawberries, with notes of pineapple and vanilla."

If you fancy a taste of the unusual fruit then you can grab a punnet or two from the M&S Foodhall now.
