Costa Rica Pineapples are available year round.
The delicious world of pineapple is exploding with new tasty hybrid varieties, such as the Costa Rican Gold variety. Forever a favorite fruit, pineapples continue to be the most popular of all the tropical fruits.
Almost like shimmering gold, Costa Rica pineapple is scrumptiously sweet and deliciously juicy. The ultimate in pineapple flavor, its very low acid content makes room for its very high sugar content. Its tender bright yellow flesh is encased by its attractive very yellow shell. Not only rich in taste, it's rich in color and generously releases its characteristic fresh tropical aroma.
Offering dietary fiber, pineapple provide a source of vitamin C, plus some iron and calcium. Two slices, about three inches in diameter, contain about 60 calories.
A natural in most any combination, cubed pineapple dresses up grilled kabobs. Blend with bananas, mangoes, papaya, kiwifruit, and strawberries for a glorious tasting fruit salad. A hollowed-out shell makes an attractive festive bowl for seafood, chicken or fruit salads. To keep the "bowl" from rocking, cut a thin slice from the bottom. To store, ripe pineapple should be refrigerated but not too cold. Cover with plastic to prevent moisture loss. Use within a few days.
The Victorians raised the cultivation of pineapples to a high level when they regulated the heat from steam boilers.
Native to the Caribbean and Central America, more than half of the pineapple supply is grown in Latin America, primarily in Costa Rica.
