Fresh Del Monte is the leading supplier of fresh pineapples in the world with the original Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapples. Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapples are mostly grown on company-controlled farms in Costa Rica and the Philippines. In contrast to bananas, pineapples have a long growing cycle of 18 months, and require re-cultivation after one to two harvests.
Pineapples are grown in tropical and sub-tropical locations, including the Philippines, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and various countries in Africa. While there are many varieties of pineapple, historically the principal variety was the Champaka pineapple, which is the traditional conical shaped pineapple with a light yellow flesh. The success of the premium pineapples, such as our Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapple, which has enhanced taste, golden shell color, bright yellow flesh and higher vitamin C content has replaced the Champaka and other traditional pineapple varieties in popularity. The Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapple is the world's sweetest pineapple with consistent taste and supply. Picked ripe and ready to eat.
Its English name “pineapple” came from Spanish Explorers who said it looked like a pinecone. Pineapples are the world’s symbol for hospitality, and when presented to someone, it’s symbolic of saying, “You're Perfect".
