National Pineapple Day!

Happy National Pineapple Day!
I seriously could eat pineapples all day every day. They are so good! Pineapples are one of those mystery fruits to me. Did you know that they grow in the ground and not on a tree?? Also, did you know that once a pineapple is harvested that it will not continue to ripen like other fruits do? Once it is picked, it’s as ripe as it will ever be. Therefore, the color of the fruit doesn’t signify how ripe it is, but rather where it was grown. (Huffington Post Article) Cool huh?

Here is an article I found that gives some sweet facts about pineapples. My favorite is that the locals in Hawaii call a sunny summer’s day rain, “pineapple juice”. Um that sounds like the most heavenly rain ever.

Enjoy!
