Our MD2 pineapples are raised in the ideal Central American microclimate of Costa Rica.
The naturally sweet flavour and reliable quality of MD2 pineapples has catapulted this variety to firm fruit bowl favourite around the world.
Not just loved by consumers, the MD2 pineapple is also naturally immune to many diseases and viruses that typically affect more traditional varieties, making it the preferred choice on farm too.
Cultivating quality pineapple
The scale of our pineapple production across the country means that we are in a great position to manage risk and weather disruption.
Many pineapple strains must be cultivated with artificial irrigation on sloped ground, however the MD2 variety can instead grow comfortably utilising the rainwater found in its ideal growing habitats.
Did you know…?
Our pineapple waste is used as a food source for cattle. Manure then fertilises the ground creating a closed loop waste cycle.
