Pineapple (Narnat)

 

The pineapple originated in tropical America and is now extensively cultivated in Myanmar. Fresh pineapple is greatly appreciated as a refreshing snack or as a dessert, and the juice is prepared as a delicious drink. Other products prepared from pineapple include fruit salad, sugar syrup, alcohol and citric acid.

Fresh pineapple is a good source of vitamin C, it also contains appreciable quantity of thiamin. Pineapple leaves yield a strong white fibre which provides the raw material for the production of silky cloth. Special species are used for this purpose and the fruit is removed to facilitate leaf production.
