Pineapple Fields Forever

Pineapple Fields Forever

Central southern Benin grows a lot of pineapples. Lack of infrastructure and industrial processing plants prevents most of the pineapples from being exported. Instead, pineapples flood the market. I have gotten spoiled by the abundance of cheap, delicious pineapples that are usually sold for 75 – 100 cfa ($0.15 – $0.20) each. This is a field of pineapple plants. Each plant grows one pineapple.
