South African Baby Pineapples
South Africa is noted for these baby pineapples, also known as Queen Victoria Pineapples, which thrive in the hot and humid climate.
These sweet, tart baby pineapples have a bold, rich flavor. They have a fragrant, golden skin and brilliantly colored yellow flesh. South African baby pineapples are entirely edible, with no need to remove the core. The size of an average fruit is about 4.5 inches high (not including leaves) and about 3.5 inches in diameter, making it a perfect individual serving.
Look for fruit with bright coloring and deep green leaves. Avoid pineapples with brown or soft spots and dry brown leaves. May be kept in refrigeration for up to ten days.
