Sorry Mr. G. Pineapples are from Brazil, not Hawai

I have just posted a second reply to Mr. G. Continues his BS.

As not to flame but to denfend the history of these mushrooms I must point out that Mr. G. needs to have his whisle wetted.

Pineapple, ananas (Ananas comosus)

BROMELIACEAE, Pineapple Family

The pineapple (Ananas comosus) is one of the world's most popular and bizarre dessert fruits. Pineapples were eaten by Amerinds before Columbus arrived in the New World, and the natives called it ananas, which is its name in some languages (e.g., French)

Pineapples are originally native to Brazil and Paraguay. They were introduced into Florida by the Spanish who brought them to Florida from South America. 1886, was the year of the first plantations for widespread cultivation of the pineapple in Martin Country Florida and through out the region. But eventually pineapples were not feasable because of the freezing weather which most floridans know are not good for pineapples and sometimes evern ruining whole crops of other citrus such as orange,etc.

I only need to post one reference for the original pineapples which are from Brazil and Paraguay in South America all pineapples grown around the world came from the Paraguayan and Brazillian domestication of this fruit.


As for Hawaii, The first Pineapples in Hawaii, as in Florida were planted successfully in 1886.

Again this was way after your supposed Spanish pineapples came form Hawaii.

Here is the infor for Hawaiin pineapples and how they came to Hawaii.

Reference: http://www.botgard.ucla.edu/html/botanytextbooks/economicbotany/Ananas/

"Pineapple originated in South America, and the Guarani Indians of northern Paraguay were the first to domesticate this crop. During the 16th century, this plant was transported around the world by traders. Pineapples grow well in dry, well-drained tropical habitats, e.g., tropical America, Southeast Asia, and South and West Africa, but about one-third of the world's supply comes from the Hawaiian Islands, where the crop was successfully developed in 1896."
