Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant indigenous to South America, where it has been cultivated for many centuries. Resembling a regular pineapple, the baby pineapple is about 5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter. The baby pineapple is native to Mauritius where it is cultivated today as well as in South Africa and in the extinct volcanoes of the Reunion islands.
These mini pineapples thrive in a warm, humid climate. The Queen pineapple variety has been grown in the South African area of Hluhluwe, in Northern Zulu Land since the mid-1980s. Baby pineapples can also be found growing in Brazil, Hawaii and Thailand.
Major producers of baby pineapples include Brazil, Hawaii and Thailand but they are also produced in other regions of the world. Costa Rica, Philippines and India produce significant amounts of baby pineapples.
Flavours & Texture
It has a full pineapple taste and less fibrous, edible core. They tend to be sweeter than the full-grown varieties, rich flavour and have a softer texture.
Cut the pineapple in quarters from top to bottom leaving the crown on. No need to cut out the mid-section of the pineapple, for there is no core. You can eat it raw, in a fruit salad, in smoothies, juice or cocktails. Additionally, you can use them in a variety of foods. We also recommend planting the crown in a pot and watching him grow!
Baby pineapples are low in calories and they have very low amounts of fat, a fact which makes them a good option for those who want to keep their calories in check.
