Pineapples can withstand high temperatures and long droughts, so Taiwan’s excellent climate and environment possess the geographic advantages to plant pineapples throughout the year. Pineapples are rich in such nutrients as vitamins A, B complex, C, and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, carotene, etc. Pineapples offer a number of varieties, with the ananas comosus tasting the best and ultimately becoming Taiwan’s representative variety thanks to its high sweetness, low acidity, fine flesh, and strong flavor.
