The Golden Pineapple

The MD-2 (or the "Golden Pineapple") was developed for a market looking for extra sweet fruit, uniformity in size and ripeness. It is a hybrid pineapple with a green and/or golden skin color when mature.

The pulp is sweeter with lower fiber and acidity, although it can contain as much as four times more vitamin C than regular varieties.

It has a nine-day longer post-harvest shelf life of 30 days when compared to other varieties and it is able to survive in cold storage for up to 2 weeks.

It was originally introduced in Costa Rica and has now become the standard variety for most large pineapple producers in Latin America and Asia.
