Pineapples, also known as Baby South African pineapples, are smaller than the common pineapple, standing only four to 5 inches tall. The fronds extending from the crown are only 2 inches longer and are sharp and covered in spikes. These mini pineapples have a fragrant golden orange skin and juicy, bright yellow flesh. They are sweeter and more aromatic than their larger counterparts. 1 Piece weighs around 500 to 600 Grams
Pineapple is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, as well as some iron and calcium. The pineapple’s core contains high levels of an enzyme called bromelain, which is said to be an effective anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid. Raw pineapple can be eaten as is, and also juiced or pureed for smoothies and fruit cocktails, like a pina colada. Fresh pineapple can be roasted, grilled, or baked for desserts, including pineapple upside-down cake.
