This is one pineapple you won’t find at any grocery store!
After 16 years in the making, Del Monte has released a very special new pineapple! While it looks like a typical pineapple from the outside, the Pinkglow Pineapple is completely pink on the inside.
The pretty color of this fruit is due to the natural pigment lycopene, which gives other produce like tomatoes and watermelon their red color. The Pinkglow Pineapples are also said to have a unique taste, with notes of cotton candy, more sweetness, and less acidity than traditional pineapples.
The one-of-a-kind Pinkglow Pineapple is grown only in the south-central region of the Costa Rican jungle, which has the exact right soil and climate needed for this variety for fruit. They aren’t sold in stores anywhere in the US, so the only way to get one is by shelling out $49 to have one shipped directly to your home. 😱
Your Pinkglow Pineapple will be packaged beautifully and guaranteed to arrive fresh, but note that it will arrive without its crown. They’re harvested this way because the tops are cut off and replanted to grow the next batch of pink pineapples.
If we had a dollar for every time we cut into a pineapple and were disappointed that it wasn’t pink… well, it still wouldn’t be enough to cover the cost of this beauty. But if you’re super committed to the dreamy pink vibe of your Instagram feed or looking to create a really memorable fruit tray, then the Pinkglow Pineapple may be just what you’re looking for!
Think of the possibilities a pink pineapple would bring to your kitchen! Pink Dole Whips, Pinka-Coladas, and monochromatic ham and pineapple all come to mind. If you’re looking for more recipe ideas, Dole has them for you over on PinkGlowPineapple.com.
Gotta have one? There are only a certain number available each day and inexplicably, these $50 pineapples are regularly selling out. If you don’t get one today, come back tomorrow and check the website early in the day.
You can also enter a contest to win one for free! Just head on over here to enter your email and you could win a Pinkglow Virtual Party for you and nine friends. You’ll all be treated to a free Pinkglow pineapple, cocktail gifts, and a cocktail masterclass from an expert mixologist.
