Why is the pineapple called a pineapple? After all, it doesn’t grow on a pine tree, and it’s not an apple, so what gives? Well, like most words that originate in one place and are translated over continents and oceans and languages, this word has a story. The pineapple is native to the regions of South America that now make up Brazil and Paraguay. English speaking explorers, noting its sweetness and pine-cone-like appearance, named it pineapple, and it stuck. Spanish explorers used similar nomenclature, calling it piña (pine cone), as well as ananá, a nod to the native Tupi word nanas, which meant “excellent fruit.” Those same Spanish explorers are believed to have first brought the fruit to the Philippines, and today, that country is the world’s largest grower of pineapples. The tropical climate is ideal for cultivating this sweet-tart fruit, and this particular variety of pineapple (the MD2, native to the Philippines) produces particularly delicious juice.

Trader Joe’s 100% Pineapple Juice really is 100% of the pineapple (with foliage removed). Yep; the whole fruit. Our supplier takes whole fruits and puts them through a juicer, so not a single bit of these great-tasting fruits is lost. Most pineapple juice in cans is from concentrate, but the juice inside these cans is 100% freshly-pressed juice, not from concentrate. Fruit to juicer to can to Trader Joe’s – that’s a succinct summation of how this juice gets to you. Chill it down, drink it straight, or add it to your favorite cocktails. With summer at your doorstep, fresh & fruity pineapple potions sound absolutely appealing.

We’re selling Trader Joe’s 100% Pineapple Juice in 4-packs of 8.45 ounce cans for $2.99, an absolutely appealing price for 100% juice that tastes this good.
