A New Look

The pineapple has enjoyed a rich and romantic heritage as a symbol of welcome, friendship, and hospitality. Pineapples were brought back from the West Indies by early European explorers during the seventeenth century. From that time on, the pineapple became the favored fruit of royalty and the elite. Today, it is globally recognized as a symbol of hospitality.
