Where do pineapples grow?

The pineapple is indigenous to South America. The name “pineapple” originated from European explorers who considered the fruit was similar to a cross between a pine cone and an apple. Columbus was the 1st person to introduce pineapples to Europe after discovering them on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe in 1493. The U. S. ranks among the world’s top suppliers of pineapples, although they are produced only in Hawaii, to which they were introduced in the 18th century. Other countries that grow pineapples commercially include the Philippines, Thailand, China, Mexico and Brazil.
