A Noble Present of a Day Thread

As you know, on this day in 1859, the first shipment of canned pineapple left Hawaii.

As written in A Noble Present of Fruit: A History of Transatlantic Pineapple Cultivation, “this rare plant, once regarded as an exotic delicacy in Europe… came within reach of all.”

Most importantly, this has allowed the world’s pizza-makers to easily supply us with one of the best types of pizza. Hawaiian FTW.
