Ah but they became a huge export crop for us. Ever have an English pineapple? LOL. The Dole cannery used to smell like warm pineapple! But they closed it a few years back. We still grow pineapples though, Adam.ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= <3
Another cool factoid. But now, I'm craving pineapple!
What taste!!!.. Love pineapple.. Interesting post.. Cheers!!!..
Love pineapple! Simply delicious in whatever. We get a lot of Pineapple from Brazil in Portugal. Not surprised at it's origin!Cheers.
A very popular fruit, but a little too sweet for me.
I've never actually ate fresh pineapple, we don't have it a lot here, just some canned one... Not my fave...
Never eaten it either at my sea, none of that was known by me
I never thought about Hawaii growing pineapples. They are of course grown here in Australia in the north and are transport down here to Tasmania when in season.....they are lovely.
interesting! never knew that.
Wow! I never knew that.Just like potatoes aren't native to Ireland.And Madonna wasn't native to England.Which explains why they gave her back.
I knew they weren't native to Hawaii but I didn't know where they originated.
They taste great
There's still some pineapples grown on Hawaii but most of the big scale commercial production has moved to the Phillipines where labour is cheaper. Your friendly neighbourhood globalization at work.
Interesting, as always!-Kati
Great fact. I love pineapples.
Interesting. I do love fresh pineapple.
Very interesting...and when I was at the groc. store today, I bought fresh pineapple and I do believe it was the best we've ever had.
I didn't know it wasn't a native fruit in Hawaii. It is one that I absolutely love fresh!
One of my favorite fruits. YUMMY.
I love pinneapples fresh and delicious!
