Del Monte Actually Sells Pineapples That Are Pink on the Inside, and We’re Not Sure How We Feel About It

Pinkglow Pineapple

Until today, we only knew pineapples as yellow, and we were okay with that. The golden color fruit is sweet and delicious, but the thing we love about it the most is that there are so many different ways to eat it. Obviously it’s amazing sliced or chopped all by itself, but you can also turn it into a pina colada, bake a pineapple upside down cake, or make it the star of your next charcuterie board.

There is certainly nothing wrong with an ordinary yellow pineapple, but have you ever wished that a pineapple came in another color, like pink? If so, that wish has come true.

Del Monte has found pineapples in Costa Rica that are pink on the inside, and they have made it possible for you to get one shipped to your door. Shipping only takes a couple days, but it’s not cheap. 

Del Monte has given the unusual and beautiful pineapple the name Pinkglow Pineapple. Because it is so unusual and because it is not sold in grocery stores, a single pineapple costs anywhere from $30 to $50 depending on where you order it

Don’t be surprised when your pineapple arrives and you open the box. Each pineapple is shipped after the green crown is cut off and replanted. The outside of the pineapple won’t look very pink either, but have no fear; cut inside and you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re unsure about a pink pineapple, just think about how many likes and comments you’ll get when you post a picture of it on social media. It’s so unusual that it’s almost guaranteed to get some buzz.

Just a slice of the fruit is amazing, but you could also try a recipe like Pinkglow™ Meringue Trifles with Lime Curd or Pinkglow™ Fruit Salad with Pineapple-Hibiscus Dressing.

If you want to try your luck at getting a free Pinkglow Pineapple, Del Monte is currently having a contest where one winner and 9 of his or her friends will each be shipped a Pinkglow Pineapple plus cocktail gifts. They will also participate in a virtual cocktail masterclass taught by an expert mixologist. You can enter here.

If you still think a pink pineapple is too unusual, just remember that pink grapefruit exists, and if you like grapefruit, it’s amazing. We tend to think something as unusual as a pink pineapple is worth trying.
