About pineapples in Hawaii:
Many botanists believe that a European ship brought the first pineapples to Hawaii after the arrival of Captain James Cook in the 1770s. Without any knowledge of how to can fruit, James Drummond Dole established the Hawaiian Pineapple Company in 1901 and started growing pineapples in Wahiawa, Oahu. Canned pineapple became a culinary fad on the mainland United States circa 1920s, and pineapple recipes were developed for books and newspapers. Housewives prepared pineapple dishes, including the upside down cake. In 1923, Dole became the largest pineapple packer in the world, and the company was a big factor in Hawaii’s domination of the canned pineapple industry in the 1930s-40s. At the industry’s peak in Hawaii in 1935, 8 companies and 3,000 people were canning pineapples.
