Coconut-Flavored Pineapple

Scientists in Australia have developed a pineapple that has a coconut flavor -by accident! They were trying to create a hybrid pineapple with a sweeter flavor, which they did, but it coincidentally tastes like a coconut. Perfect or pina coladas!

"It's sweet, low acid, very juicy," said Garth Sanewski, a senior horticulturalist at Queensland's department of agriculture.

"It has this lovely coconut flavour, which you won't find in any other pineapple in Australia."

The pineapple hybrid is called AusFestival, and should be commercially available in a couple of years. Link -via Laughing Squid
