Fruit of the Month – Pineapple.


The Pineapple

Found by Christopher Columbus on Guadeloupe Island in 1493, this wonderful fruit has come a long way from the unknown fruit which only produces one pineapple a year from each plant. Now being native to Paraguay, Hawaii, Costa Rica, the Philippines and Brazil, they are available to purchase anywhere and at almost every supermarket. Sweet and slightly tart, they have become extremely popular for mixing with savoury ingredients to make dishes with a tropical twist whether that’s a Caribbean curry or a Hawaiian Pizza. Here are some great reasons why you should try eating more pineapple.
