Expensive Pineapple costing US $16000
This is the most expensive of the pineapple in the world. It costs around 16000 US $ and is grown inside the earth. The technique is called “Victorian” style. It is grown in a pit 40 feet long and 4 feet wide to develop the taste and flavor. This Victorian technique was restarted during the first world war.
The fruits are so prepared by working on land extensively by a group of gardeners and cultivated in Cronwall, UK at the Lost gardens of Heligan, which is in the South coast of Mevagissey village. Horticulturalists have been able to create tropical conditions in small greenhouses heated using a chemical reaction between 30 tons of horse manure and urine, and piles of straw.
Pineapple has also been a symbol of hospitality, friendship and many more in different cultures of the orient. Once the tasty fruit, they can hardly be termed as exotic these days, thanks to the globalization and improvement in storage, production as well as crop improvement. Though Pineapple can be bought for a decent price, but the cost of the most expensive pineapple can just make your jaw drop.
