Pineapple Plantation History
- The Dole Plantation originally operated as a fruit stand beginning in 1950. Dole Pineapple Plantation opened to the public as Hawaii’s “Pineapple Experience” in 1989.
- Today, Dole Plantation is one of Oahu’s most popular visitor attractions and welcomes more than one million visitors a year.
- Legend has it that the pineapple was given it’s name because it resembles a pine cone.
- Pineapples aren’t native to Hawaii. It’s believed they are originally from South America, most probably from the region between South Brazil and Paraguay.
How to Select a Pineapple
- In the supermarket, pick a pineapple that is fresh looking, plump and firm, not dry and wrinkly.
- The leaves should be green, not brown.
- A larger pineapple will have more edible fruit, but is not necessarily riper that a small one.
- Myth: if the leaves are easy to pull out it is not a sign of a ripe pineapple.
- Store your pineapple in the refrigerator.

Admission to the Dole Plantation grounds is free, and there are also plenty of free activities, including a pineapple cutting demonstration.
