Blessings and Grace


Dating back to colonial times, the pineapple has always

been a symbol of warmth and hospitality. It was common-

place for a sea captain from New England to sail the

Caribbean islands and return home with a cargo of fruits,

spices and rum. To let his friends know that he had returned

safely from the sea, the captain would spear a pineapple on

the fence post outside of his home. The pineapple was an

invitation to visit, enjoy the food and drink, and listen to

tales of the sea captains’ voyage.

Pineapples soon became a main attraction at small community feasts and home gatherings simply because of their rarity, expense, reputation and visual attractiveness. It was known as the ultimate exotic fruit and eventually came to symbolize the sense of welcome and good cheer.
