South Africa is noted for these baby pineapples, also known as Queen Victoria Pineapples, which thrive in the hot and humid climate.
These sweet, tart baby pineapples have a bold, rich flavor. They have a fragrant, golden skin and brilliantly colored yellow flesh. South African baby pineapples are entirely edible, with no need to remove the core. The size of an average fruit is about 4.5 inches high (not including leaves) and about 3.5 inches in diameter, making it a perfect individual serving.
Packed in a reusable wood crate, our South African Baby Pineapples serve as a wonderfully exotic gift.
Look for fruit with bright coloring and deep green leaves. Avoid pineapples with brown or soft spots and dry brown leaves. Keep in refrigeration for up to ten days.
Remove crown and a small portion of the base, or simply cut in half, leaving crown on, for a beautiful, succulent plate garnish.
No need to cut out the core of the pineapple, it is entirely edible and not tough at all. These pineapples are low in acid and delicious when eaten fresh out of hand or added to fruit salads.
Hawaii prohibits the shipment of any pineapple into their state.
