As a young man, making what would be his first and only trip outside of North America, George Washington recorded in his diary the culinary wonders he had found on the island of Barbados. Among the fruits he enjoyed on the trip were "China Orange" and "Avagado". Washington recorded that while the pear was "generally most admired…none pleases my taste as do's the Pine." (George Washington, 22 December 1751).
The Sugarloaf Pineapples were named after the traditional form in which refined sugar was produced and until the late 19th century when granulated and cubed sugar were introduced. The Sugarloaf Pineapples are sweet, light in color, and highly desirable.
