Pineapple - a great source of vitamin C
PINEAPPLE is one of the most popular summer fruits in our country and its price is also affordable for all levels of income earners. More importantly, pineapple is a great source of vitamin C which is good for our health in many ways. Pineapple was discovered by the Europeans in 1493 on the Caribbean islands. Because pineapple is a perishable fruit, it was a symbol of prestige during the middle age and treated as a royal food.  Since pineapple is easily grown in our country, we can earn a good amount of foreign currency by producing and exporting pineapple. Bangladesh has a huge potential in agriculture and we should utilize it to the fullest.
