What’s the difference between regular pineapples and golden pineapple?
The golden pineapple, also known as MD-2 pineapple is known for its exceptional sweetness as well as its uniformity and consistency in size and ripeness. Compared to other pineapple cultivars, MD2 is better in several qualities. Among them are: uniform bright gold color, sweeter taste, four times Vitamin C content, lower fiber, lower acidity, thinner skin, smaller fruits at an average of 1.5 kg each, and longer shelf life. Additionally, because of its superior eating qualities, MD2 can command three times the price of other pineapple varieties. These are the major factors that have motivated pineapple planters to grow MD2.
