Did You Know?

The pineapple is recognized as a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South. You can find it in all sorts of décor, like door knockers, flower vases and quilts. The fruit symbolizes those intangible assets we appreciate in a home: warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality.

This tasty tropical fruit also has a wealth of health benefits. For example, one cup of pineapple provides more than 100% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C. This  nutrient also helps support the immune system, and so much more. Vitamin C is involved in the growth and repair of tissues throughout the body, which is great after a vigorous workout. Plus it acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against premature aging and minor illnesses.
