If you are not familiar with pineapples and where they come from then you will appreciate knowing some of their history and how they got onto your plate. Pineapples are grown in tropical climates and are now found in many places that are not their original homes If you travel to the Hawaiian Islands you will quickly discover they are one of the largest and most well known producers of this great fruit. The first known pineapple is said to have come from Brazil and Paraguay and from there they have traveled the world. It is an indigenous fruit to South America and has been introduced to many other regions since the first time an explorer discovered them there. As people moved around they brought the pineapple with them and it made its way throughout the Caribbean islands. While Christopher Columbus was in the tiny Caribbean island of Guadeloupe he discovered them and brought the Pineapple back to Spain with him. Once in Spain the seafaring country, that traveled the globe, introduced them to the many countries it had conquered thus the Philippines and many countries around the world were introduced to them and since their climate suited them they were grown and are still grown there to this day. Eventually Portuguese settlers in Brazil brought the pineapple to India and we now have this fruit growing in most tropical countries around the world.
