Meghalaya Pineapples

A Journey of Flavour and Tradition
Meghalaya features diverse agro-climatic conditions, yielding a variety of agricultural and horticultural products. This year, the focus is on Meghalaya's premium pineapples, offering a taste of nature's finest creation.

Cultivating Traditions, 
Nurturing Nature

Being grown by local communities in a traditional manner, these crops are mostly organic and products like the Lakadong turmeric, GI-tagged Khasi mandarin, and Kew pineapples are gaining more and more popularity.

Pure, Sweet Goodness

The Meghalaya pineapples have very low pesticide and heavy metal residue compared to pineapples from mainland India, the officials pointed out, adding that with regard to taste, they are less sour and significantly sweeter. The pineapples have a Brix value of 16-18, which indicates the sweetness of the fruit.

A Pineapple Revolution

Meghalaya has been promoting pineapples as ‘One District – One Product’ for Ri-Bhoi and East Garo Hills. With a focus on traditional, naturally organic cultivation methods, the State’s produce is gaining recognition for its exceptional quality and flavour.
