Pineapple

How do you like pineapple? Pineapple is one of my family's favorite fruits. Aside from eating the fruit by itself, I also like to add it on fruit salad, pizza, and ham.
Del Monte Gold product of Costa Rica.
Common names of this fruit are pineapple, Ananas, Nanas, Pina and PiƱa.

Facts about Pineapple:
"The pineapple is native to southern Brazil and Paraguay where wild relatives occur. It was spread by the Indians up through South and Central America to the West Indies before Columbus arrived. In 1493 Columbus found the fruit on the island of Guadaloupe and carried it back to Spain and it was spread around the world on sailing ships that carried it for protection against scurvy. The Spanish introduced it into the Philippines and may have taken it to Hawaii and Guam early in the 16th Century. The pineapple reached England in 1660 and began to be grown in greenhouses for its fruit around 1720."

We werein Tagaytay last weekend to unwind and relax. On the way home, we bought jackfruit, mangoes, papaya, and pineapple. Tagaytay pineapples are very sweet. They sold them 5 pcs for P100. Mura di ba?
