'Aus-Jubilee': the first new Australian pineapple

Not much info here other than it is apparently quite good in most respects and chock full of Vitamin C (though I find these sort of nutritional claims seem strangely dependent on who does the analysis). I think I might of have done a bit better on the name than 'Aus-Jubilee', but I'm not sure anyone cares about pineapple names...there are some being cultivated under selection numbers and the like. It may be that they'd like to trademark the name "Jubilee" which you can't do if you patent it under it (or apply for Plant Breeders' Rights, I suspect).

New pineapple variety to hit market soon (ABC-Rural, Australia)

I had a look but it appears the link didn't work for the article.

Aus Jubilee is the breeding name, these pineapple are more consistant than anything currently available and do have plant breeders rights. There are large plantations of them on the north coast.
