Agricultural grand plan no. 3,420
That's right - tropical peaches.
According to the official news agency, Prensa Latina, small parcels of "experimental" tropical peaches have been planted across the island, from Pinar del Rio in the West to Granma province in the East.
The agency quotes the head of the National Institute of Fundamental Research on Tropical Agriculture, Adolfo Rodriguez Nodal, describing the experiment as successful so far, with plenty of seeds being collected for further planting.
Rodriguez Nodal said peaches were an ideal source of fibre, which helped reduce cholesterol levels and lessen constipation.
