Pineapple - Local.
Ah! Summer = pineapple! Such a delicious sweet summer fruit that interestingly is available for most of the year, except late November/December and into January! So is it a summer fruit after all?
Local pineapples are pretty abundant on the Sunshine Coast, you only have to go for a drive to see all the pineapple farms especially in the Glasshouse Mountains and Mary Valley.
The biggest challenge I'm sure is the fact that pineapples take between 2-3 years to grow! UGH! That's such a tough wait!
