‘Sweet’ fruit pineapple to turn ‘bitter’

Kochi: The sweet fruit pineapple too would turn sour soon as the farmers here in the state are resorting to chemical poisoning so as to improve the weight and sweetness of the fruit. Pineapple is one among the fruits that is largely exported from the state and is a much sought after fruit in other state markets. Realizing this demand and to reap maximum profit, farmers are spraying toxic chemicals to the plant prior its planting and this would continue the very day the fruits are harvested.
