I apologize now if I have already written an entry about pineapples. I don't remember and I have taken a photo of one today.
I did not eat pineapples until I came to Dominica. The only pineapples I knew growing up were the ones in a can that you mixed with cottage cheese. A gross combination if you ask me.
Once here I braved the world of pineapple. Here they are grown locally, cut from the plant when ripe and then eaten. I loved it from the first bite. I believe there is nothing better than fresh fruit ripened on the tree, plant, vine, etc. The pineapples here are delicious. I know I will never eat pineapple out of a can, but I know now I will buy fresh ones whereever I am.
