Australian scientists have developed a new breed of pineapple which contains double the amount of Vitamin C.
A 15-year joint government and industry breeding-program has produced the Aus-Jubilee pineapple. Primary Industries Minister Tim Mulherin and a group of taste testers will sample the Aussie pineapple in Brisbane on Tuesday.
"It has twice the Vitamin C of other pineapples, making it a natural choice for parents wanting a healthy, delicious snack for the kids," News.com.au quoted Mulherin as saying.
He said it was also resistant to internal browning and other blemishes.
