Product description:

 

Although Hawaii grows nowhere near the number of pineapples that she once did, it is still a viable cash crop for the islands, and you can frequently see and smell the distinctive fields as you're out and about.

While most fruits develop in just three to four months, pineapples take about 18 months to mature. Likewise, the average fruit is grown from seeds, but pineapples are cultivated from the crowns or tops of other pineapples, each of which is then planted by hand.

When the plants are a year old the flowering process begins, as a small pink pinecone-like bud appears and eventually becomes the fruit itself. Pineapples are harvested when they are ready to eat, and to ensure that they are picked at the peak of their ripeness and flavor, the fruits are actually sugar-tested in the fields.

Searching for that perfect image that just screams "Hawaii?" Look no more! Here, the iconic fruit has been captured by the brush of talented artist Steve Strickland.

Lahaina Printsellers custom-prints this image on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio, using only the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years.
