New Coconut Flavored Pineapple Developed

A new coconut flavored pineapple is in production.Pineapple and coconut seem to go hand in hand.So it might not come as a surprise that researchers have developed a coconut-flavored pineapple.For more than ten years, The Department of Agriculture in Australia has been working on creating a new type of pineapple. Dubbed the AusFestival, the pineapple has a distinct coconut flavor.It is currently in the last stages of production and expected to be available in 2 years. A horticulturalist, who worked on the new pineapple breed states “It's sweet, low acid, very juicy. When we're doing the breeding, we're not actually looking for a coconut-flavoured pineapple or any other particular flavor.” Although the coconut flavor was not initially planned, the AusFestival is expected to be a hit with consumers. It will hit store shelves in approximately 2 years. The pineapple has quite a long history. It is commonly believed that Christopher Columbus initially discovered the pineapple in the late 1400s in Guadeloupe.Today pineapple is the third most canned fruit.
