Fun Fact: In 1493, Columbus landed in Guadeloupe and found pineapples, a fruit that had grown in the Caribbean for a thousand years. The Spanish thought they looked like pine cones, and tasted like sweet apples, hence the name “pineapple.” Captain Cook brought the fruit to the Hawaiian Islands in 1777, where they have grown so abundantly that the pineapple has come to be associated with Hawaii.
