Leyte Pineapples

Possibly the sweetest pineapples in this part of the globe. Not a fibrous inch is sour, the center core soft and entirely edible.

It is of the small, probably the smallest, variety found in the Bicol region, average size is that of a medium fist. A whole pineapple can easily be consumed by one person, or split into three wedges. Nowadays, though, the Bicol pineapples are not consistently sweet.

These pineapples, served in Tacloban City for after-lunch refreshments, came from the S&R Farms in Ormoc.
