Finding pineapple berry seeds - Knowledgebase Question

I have a friend in Oklahoma who tells me she plants what she calls pineapple berries. She says they look like a strawberry in size but are yellow, instead of red, and they taste just like a pineapple! She gets seeds for them from some place called Perkins Seeds. I was wondering if you have this type of seed, and where I would look in your catalog to find them. I hope they are something that can be grown in the St. Louis as we love the taste of pineapple, and would find it fun to try these!
