The golden yellow fruit of the SanLucar pineapple is deliciously sweet, juicy and aromatic. It grows in the tropical climate of Costa Rica, where it gets just as much sunshine as it does rain. This fruit is not only a sun worshiper, but also a clever water collector. With its rosette wreath, it leads water to the plant’s centre, to make its fruit flesh fresh and juicy. Only when they have fully ripened after approx. 12–14 months are they harvested by experienced pickers – because in the end, when you cut one open, you should only see the sun smiling back at you.
A pineapple has three different flavour zones. Since the fruit sugar sinks from the top downwards, the bottom part is particularly sweet. The middle part has a balanced sweetness, just below the crown, the fruit tastes kind of sweet-sour. The larger a pineapple is, the more pronounced this effect is.
The sun shines under the skin. That’s why our carefully hand-picked pineapples taste so incredibly delicious.
