Chilean white strawberries can be quite profitable

Chilean white strawberries (frutilla blanca) are described as being very sweet, delicate, aromatic, and floral, without the acidity of their red counterparts. They aren't the most expensive variety in the world, but at nearly $13 per pound, Chilean whites are still a lot more expensive than classic reds.

They are grown in just two towns found in Chile's lush Nahuelbuta mountains: Contulmo and Purén. And as Atlas Obscura notes, this isn't a corporate enterprise — instead, family farms have been cultivating them for generations, sometimes in fields as small as an acre.
