A complete history of the fruit from its origin in the Amazon rainforest, it’s first tasting by Columbus to its staring role in eighteenth century Europe. Every great house spent a great deal of money growing the fruit and pineapples appeared on gateposts, teapots, furniture and wallpaper. Commercial crops were exported from the Caribbean in the 1840s and canning began in Hawaii in 1894. Illustrations.
