Introducing, Queen Victoria Pineapples! | Wednesday’s In the Know
Aren’t these baby pineapples from Melissa’s Produce so irresistible? I thought the same!
According to Melissa’s Produce, “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.”
As far as uses are concerned, baby pineapples not only make for a festive and cute paperweight anchoring cocktail napkins on your bar cart, they also make for a great carafe when hollowed and served a frozen pineapple slushy, margarita or spritzer inside! However you choose to enjoy them, I encourage you to pick up a few on your next trip to the market (look in the “exotic” fruit section of your local major grocery store) and utilize to your heart’s content!
