Pineapple Delight

Pineapples, Pineapples, Pineapples… Did you know our amazing Aussie Farmers produce around 35 million pineapples each year? Now that’s a tropical sensory overload!! These delicious delights stem from the Bromeliad family, which produce an edible fruit. Each pineapple from its’ humble beginnings to harvest takes up to two years to grow. Most Aussie pineapples are grown in South-East Queensland, Yepoon, North Queensland and the Northern Territory. In 1493 it is said that Christopher Columbus first laid his eyes on pineapples during his second voyage to “the new world” on the Island of Guadeloupe, an archipelago in the Carribean. From there news of this exotic fruit began to quickly spread, becoming the fruit enjoyed by mostly royalty. To this day it still wears a crown, just one of its own creation.
