At last, the ultimate pineapple gift! Sun-ripened on the plantation, Melissa’s Gold Pineapples are naturally sweet and juicy. Unlike most pineapples, which are picked green, these premium golden-yellow pineapples are very high in sugar, low in acid and arrive ready to eat. Pineapples are unique in that they contain the enzyme bromelain, which is a natural digestive agent that breaks down proteins. For this reason, fresh pineapple is excellent for serving as a palate cleanser and digestive aid after a heavy meal. Use fresh pineapple in meat or seafood marinades to add a flavorful accent and to help tenderize the proteins.
Included with each order is a special Melissa’s Pineapple Corer. With this ingenious tool, you can have perfect pineapple rings in seconds, instead of spending time peeling, cutting and slicing. All the flavorful juice will be retained inside the “shell”, which you can then use as a decorative container for tropical smoothies and festive cocktails.
From its founding by Sharon and Joe Hernandez in 1984 in a small rented room, to its current standing as the U.S.’s largest distributor of specialty produce with a 280,000 square foot warehouse in Los Angeles, Melissa’s Produce has remained family-run. If you’ve been wondering how world-class restaurants and TV shows like “Top Chef” have been able to track down the world’s best produce…well, the secret’s out. Fresh vegetable and fruit delivery includes flawless baby vegetables; exotic fruits including lychees and Pepino melons (and some you may not have even heard of, like sapotes and tamarillos); and more — you’ve truly never had produce like this.
