There are over 100 known pineapple varieties, only 6-8 of which are cultivated commercially, most of which are varieties from the Cayenne group, and the successful MD-2 variety.
Ginosar Agro provides disease-free selections of the MD2 Pineapple variety. The plants are tissue-culture produced and are selected from our mother pineapple plantations in Israel.
The pineapple variety MD2 has become the preferred variety for the fresh pineapple market because of its exceptional sweetness, flavor, golden color, shape and life span. We brought this variety to Israel and specialized in adapting them to local conditions. It is advantageous for growers due to uniformity and consistency in size and ripeness. The fruit is medium-large (1.3-2kg), its flesh is sweeter, less fibrous and less acidic and it contains more vitamin C than other pineapple varieties. The fruit eyes are large and flat, by that avoiding loss of pulp during peeling, and the leaves are spineless.
