    But I like apricot-pineapple jam just fine.

    1. Never thought about where they came for before, Gorges!

  3. The area just to our east was known as the pineapple capital of the world 100 years ago. From wiki

    "The history of Jensen Beach in the 19th century revolved around pineapple farming. John Laurence Jensen, an immigrant from Denmark, arrived in 1881, and set up his pineapple plantation, which became the town of Jensen.

    By 1894, the Florida East Coast Railway reached Jensen Beach, and freight shipments were loaded directly onto the freight cars.

    By 1895, Jensen was called the "Pineapple Capital of the World," shipping over one million boxes of pineapples each year during the June and July season[4] To help handle the increased pineapple production, a pineapple factory was built."

  5. I went out and bought one yesterday - will try to grow one - it sure is hot enough here! :o)
