France 1st European pineapple producer.
Thanks to the cultures of Reunion, France ranks as the leading European producer of pineapple.
In 1493, Christopher Columbus set foot on Guadeloupe soil and noticed a curious fruit with hexagonal patterns. Pineapple has been cultivated for thousands of years by local people.
Originally from Paraguay, this member of the bromeliad family is a resounding success in Europe. It is grown in greenhouses in Holland, Great Britain or France. Louis XIV even integrated it into the cultures of the Château de Choisy-le-Roi in order to satisfy the appetite of his mistress, Madame de Maintenon.
However, it was not until the 1980s and the development of air transport that the consumption of this concentrate of vitamin C was not democratized. With 30,000 tonnes produced per year, France then rose to the top of European producers. Its industrial culture is established in particular in Reunion, Guyana and Guadeloupe.
