Pink Pineapples are literally everywhere on social media these days, but we have yet to actually try it ourselves. The fruit, developed over a decade ago, was bioengineered by produce giant Del Monte, which specifically cultivated and grew the plants in Costa Rica.
Pink pineapples are popular for its unique light pink colour and a super juicy, sweet taste. From the outside, pink pineapples look similar to their yellow-hued counterparts, but on the inside, they are a whole different matter.
Pink pineapples are high in vitamin C—which is great for your immune system, and has substantial fibre, and is free of fat, cholesterol, and sodium.
But it is recommended purchasing your pink pineapple close to when you plan to enjoy it. It can be stored in the pantry or kitchen, or any cool place without any direct sunlight for up to three days, or sit whole in the fridge for about 48 hours. But once cut, the fruit lasts for up to a week in the fridge, when it is covered and sealed.
If you have tried the pink pineapple, do share your thoughts on whether it’s worth all the hype before we take the plunge and get it.
