Pineapple 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.

Selecting 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 and a fish-feeding pond.
