Of course we had thousands of responses to our test question....ok, we didn't even have one. So either everyone has been waiting on pins and needles to find out the answer or no one is reading our blog! No matter! We continue undetered...! The real reason we put this up there is because if you want to know if we really do pick pineapples and eat them fresh....we do! Talk about fresh and organic.....we have had three fantastic pineapples lately; eaten the same day we picked them. Two from Hale Kakahi and a very sweet delicious one from Angel House.
Both of these vacation rentals are on the Big Island and also grow bananas, lemons, papaya, all ONOLICIOUS!!!! Just so you all know, the pineapple fruit is the flower of the pineapple plant. And it takes over a year for one pineapple plant to ripen! Remember that the next time you taste this wonderful tropical treat! OH! and did you know you can take the top part of the pineapple, plant it in the ground and a year or so later, enjoy it again! Ah.....mother nature. szk
