Australian scientists create AusFestival, a coconut-flavoured pineapple

Scientist create coconut flavored pinneapple

The new pineapple called 'AusFestival' has been 10 years in the making and is now in the final stages of production.

"Taste tests tell us that AusFestival is a winner - it has this lovely coconut flavour, which you won't find in any other pineapple in Australia," Senior horticulturalist Garth Senewski told ABC.

"It's sweet, low acid, very juicy."

He said researchers did not intentionally create a coconut flavour.

"We're looking for a nice flavoured pineapple," he said.

"We're looking for a variety that is sweet, low acid and aromatic."

The new pineapple is likely to be commercially available in two years.
