Although considered endemic to Jamaica the pineapple was brought to Jamaica by the Tainos, who settled Jamaica about 800 Common Era (CE).
The pineapple thrived in Jamaica because of the favourable environmental conditions, and was used as both a food and symbol of Jamaica.
The pineapple fruit is eaten fresh where available and in canned form worldwide. It is sometimes used as a pastry filling or in baked desserts.
Use of the pineapple profile from the 1660s along with Symon Benning’s initials SB on his Jamaican made pewter dishes shows the historic association of the pineapple with Jamaica. After all pewter was the material of choice for domestic utensils in 17th-century England and her early colonies.
Five golden pineapples are featured on the Jamaican Coat of Arms and the pineapple is also imprinted as a watermark on bank notes.
