Global pineapple production by leading countries 2018

In 2018, Costa Rica, Philippines, and Brazil were the top three pineapple producers worldwide. Costa Rica generated 3.42 million metric tons of pineapples in that year. Overall pineapple production in that year amounted to 27.92 million metric tons.

Pineapple cultivation

Pineapple cultivation is quite time intensive. The fruit needs between 14 to 18 months before it reaches full maturity and is ready to harvest. Pineapples also grow best in tropical areas, which is why the vast majority of pineapples come from countries similar to Costa Rica in climate.

Pineapple consumption in the United States

Pineapple can be consumed fresh or eaten alongside savory foods such as chicken, ham, or beef. The average American consumed about 7.7 pounds of fresh pineapple in 2017. Canned pineapple is also widely available in the United States, though per capita consumption of canned fruit in general has decreased substantially between 2000 and 2018.
