The company grows three (3) varieties of pineapples; smooth cayenne/ cayenne Lisse, MD2/ Extra Sweet and Sugar Loaf.

 

MD2/Extra Sweet is a hybrid variety developed by the Hawaiian Pineapple Research Institute. It gives a medium to large ( 1.3 – 2.5 )kg cylindrical, square-shouldered fruit with a well-shaped crown, large flat eyes and an intense orange-yellow color. The clear yellow pulp is sweet, compact and fibrous. It is high in sugar and therefore very sweet and very tasty with a lowly aroma/scent.

 

Smooth Cayenne/ Cayenne Lisse is the primary pineapple in the world. This variety weighs between 1.3-3.0 kg and is known for its high acid and sugar content.

 

Sugar Loaf has a white flesh with no woodiness in the center. It is cylindrical in shape and has a high sugar content but no acid. It has an unusually sweet fruit taste. It normally weighs between 1.0-2.0kg

 

Queen Victoria is another variety grown by Golden Riverside ltd. The fruit has a golden yellow flesh, crisp texture and delicate mild flavor. It is well adapted to fresh consumption and it keeps well after ripening. It usually weighs between 0.5-1.2 kg
