 Now, Pineapple With Double the Amount of Vitamin C

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.
