A Closer Look at Fresh Del Monte Pinkglow Pineapple

If you’ve visited Hawaii, you know that delectable pineapples grow wild, providing an unrivaled sweetness near impossible to find on the Mainland. Like many others, upon returning home I searched for a substitute to no avail—that was, until Fresh Del Monte unveiled its Pinkglow™ pineapple, and my mind ran wild. Could this be it?

Pinkglows arrive in a beautiful box painted in the rich colors of the Costa Rican jungle where its storied origin begins, alluding to the premium quality of the fruit that has spent two years perfecting its final form. 

Upon reveal, Pinkglow’s rind resembles a traditional pineapple devoid of its spiky crown, as farmers carefully remove them to cultivate the next generation of the coveted jungle jewel. Although indistinguishable on the outside, what lies beneath the exterior differentiates Pinkglow.

Promising a less acidic flavor than its golden cousin, Pinkglow delivers a combination of sweetness, juiciness, and brilliant pink flesh—a marvel to behold, gifting patrons reprieve from the humdrum of stay-at-home life 2020 has brought, transporting them to a tropical fantasy—even if only for a few bites.

Available exclusively online at for now, there is no telling what the future will hold as this premium variety begins to captivate. Could you be the next retailer to offer this sweet escape?
