Dole Introduces Golden Selection Pineapples

Dole pineapples

Charlotte, North Carolina-based Dole Food Company is introducing a more aromatic and golden pineapple in response to consumer demand for a sweeter pineapple-eating experience.

The variety can be found at select supermarkets in the U.S. and Canada. Sustainably grown in Costa Rica, the new fruit has been cultivated to shine brighter and offer a more vibrant tropical flavor that balances the pineapple’s customary sweet and tart sensations.

Less than 6 percent of all pineapples possess the taste and appearance qualifications necessary to be tagged a Dole Golden Selection Pineapple. The new fruit will be available in limited quantities based on seasonality and availability.

“In the 122 years that Dole has been cultivating pineapples in Hawaii, Central and South America and throughout the tropics, we’ve learned what it takes to grow the world’s best, most beloved fruit,” said William Goldfield, director of corporate communications.

“While all Dole pineapples are tender, sweet and packed with nutrients, healthy enzymes and Vitamins B6 and C, these new Golden Selection Pineapples glow and taste just a little brighter.”

Melanie Marcus, Dole’s nutrition and health communications manager, has identified a number of dishes from Dole’s online recipe library that showcase the enhanced sweetness of the Dole Golden Selection Pineapple, including pineapple carpaccio, Dole mango pineapple salad, cool summer gazpacho salad, ginger-chili ahi tuna poke skewers and magic carpet lemon curd cups, created in honor of Princess Jasmine for Disney’s ultimate princess celebration.
