Dole Pineapple Farm

While in Hawaii, we found the cheaper it was, the better it was. Seriously! Here are some pictures of the Dole Pineapple Plantation.

Newlyweds! Can we say losers??

Getting ready to ride the Pineapple Express! This was a train tour of the plantation that grows pineapples as well as bananas.

Here is the train we rode!

Fun Facts about Pineapples: It takes 2 years for them to grow, and only 1 pineapple grows per plant. Their are over 6 different kinds of pineapples. If you take the top off of a full grown pineapple, you can plant it, wait 2 years and get another one! Also, their is a really neat way to cut pineapple to get the most for your money. If you go to the Dole website, they have a knife for $6 that works wonders!!
