Where did this pineapple craze come from?
Everywhere you look on Instagram, these spiky fruits are popping up. Pineapples have long been the symbol of hospitality. According to Apartment Therapy, the history of the “hospitality pineapple” can be found as Christopher Columbus wrote about pineapples in his travel journal. He was served this sweet never-before-seen fruit when he landed on the island of Guadalupe. In colonial America, hostesses would set a pineapple in the middle of their tables when a guest came for a visit. The pineapple symbolized the warmest of welcome to guests.
Not only does the pineapple carry historical and cultural significance, but it’s also pretty freakin’ cute. Pineapples are such a tropical, beach-y fruit. It’s no wonder Instagram turns to this funky, yellow and green fruit to show off summer fun! Check out some of these fun and colorful pineapple pics we’ve found, and you’ll see what we mean:
