The Tarty-Sweet Delicacy

Indigenous peoples of the past cultivated a delicious domestic pineapple that quickly became a staple crop of the Caribbean. By the 16th century most tropical regions were growing domesticated pineapples having been brought around the world by the Spaniards. Pineapple plants will begin to flower 15-20 months after seeds are planted and it can take an additional five to six months for the fruit to be ripe enough to harvest.

Health Benefits & Use Cases

Pineapple is known to contain a high level of the enzyme bromelain which can reduce inflammation. Its high fiber content supports the digestive tract to make sure things run smoothly. Insoluble fiber also provides a sense of fullness, so low sweet pineapple slices are a great option to satisfy hunger between meals.

Did You Know?

Bromelain, the digestive enzyme found in pineapples, can be used as a meat tenderizer!
