Do Pineapples come from Hawaii?
Botanist tell us that pineapples are indigenous to South America and is said to originate from the area between southern Brazil and Paraguay, yet little is known about the origin of the domesticated pineapple. The nineteenth century, thanks in large part to James Dole, saw Hawaii grown to prominence in pineapple growing and then decline to a minor player in the world market. As recently as 1991, Hawaii provide half of the pineapples sold in the U.S. while today it is less than 15%. Today, pineapples are grown in abundance in Costa Rica, Philippines, Brazil, Thailand, Honduras, and other tropical parts of the world. U.S. buyers get most of their pineapples from Costa Rica (82% of U.S. sold pineapples in 2016).
