The Manzana pineapple is a variety of pineapple whose skin has a deep red color when ripe, along with smaller eyes compared to other pineapple varieties. The flesh inside is juicy, less sweet and acidic than other varieties, and a pale pink color. Each pineapple weighs about 2 to 3 pounds. The outside of the Manzana Pineapple does not have spines like other pineapples. This variety does not ship well and is not very tolerant of handling. Thanks to a hormone that induces flowering, the Manzana pineapple grows in constant production all year. One pineapple is produced every 22 months.
Manzana pineapples are available year-round.
The Manzana pineapple is a variety of pineapple, known scientifically as Ananas Comosus. Manzana pineapples originated from a mutation from another variety of pineapple. The mutation created a new variety whose main characteristics are a lack of spines and red skin. Pineapples form from the independent ovaries of many flowers that become one large mass. In other words, one pineapple is made up of a group of hundreds of fruits.
Pineapples are a good source of vitamins such as C, B1, B6, B9 (folic acid), and some vitamin E. They also contain minerals including potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, iodine, copper, and manganese, in addition to citric acid, malic acid, and oxalic acid.
Rotate the pineapple’s crown to loosen it, cut the pineapple in half and then in quarters. Cut off the ends and remove the hard core in the center. Using a narrow knife, separate the pulp from the peel. Cut the pulp in chunks. Pineapple is perfect raw or cooked, paired with meats like pork and poultry. Prepare sauces, jams, smoothies, or desserts with pineapple, or add to yogurt or ice cream. It is important to remember that Manzana pineapples are delicate and should be handled with care.

The Manzana pineapple originated in 1957 on a farm in the region of Santander, Colombia. Since then, it has been cultivated commercially and distributed throughout that country. This variety has been an important source of income and economic development for the region. Pineapples are native to South America and have been grown since at least the 17th century by the Mayas and were introduced to the Iberian Peninsula by the Spanish Conquistadors. In the 18th century, Hawaii began exporting pineapples in syrup. In the middle of the 20th century, the production of pineapples doubled worldwide, and since then has continued to grow. Manzana pineapples are also grown in Hawaii, the Ivory Coast, and other African regions. These growing regions produce half of all pineapples consumed in Europe.
