Del Monte has decided to add something interesting to 2020. Something that most of us didn't see coming. The new Pinkglow Pineapple. This is a pineapple that is no the typical yellow pineapple that we are accustomed to, rather it is pink! Here's the cool thing: it's not dyed pink, it actually grows that way.
The Pinkglow Pineapples even taste different than a normal pineapple. According to Tropical Fruit Box, Pinkglow Pineapples are sweeter, less acidic, not as sour, juicier, and have a cotton candy finish. These pineapples are harvested by hand, and then their crowns are replanted in an effort to increase the amount of new pineapple crops.
So how in the world did these pineapples grow pink? According to the FAQ, they are pink thanks to something called lycopene. This is a natural pigment that gives some produce like tomatoes and watermelon its red color. In this case, it turns pineapple pink.
