Russian growers might grow pineapples in new greenhouse

In Russia's Far East region "Dalnevostochnoye" a new 18 ha greenhouse has been built with the support of the local government. The greenhouse is not completely new but an existing structure that has been reconstructed for 5.54 million Euro. Half of the cost of the revamp was government support, the other half was paid with money from the bank.

The new greenhouse will be used to cultivate vegetables that are popular with locals: leafy greens , cucumbers, tomatoes, several varieties of lettuce, including exotic (Swiss) chard and salad rocket, parsley, basil, dill and others.

The director of the complex also announced that they will try to grow something unusual for the region, such as pineapples. "The technologies we use will allow us to grow anything because we have all the tools to create any climate we desire."
