Quite apparently, piña suffers by way of the same comparison.

We couldn't use any variation of ananas because of bananas.  But "pineapple" makes no sense (also grapefruit) (let alone grapefruit nuts)

Actually NC the Hawaiians bailed on the Pineapple and Sugar plantations from the outset- we would not be doing that kind of work even though it led to some really big challenges for us as a result of that decision. Instead, a series of immigrant groups, the descendants of whom now make up modern Hawaii, were brought in to do the backbreaking work. As far as the wages we fought and killed and were killed along with our ILWU brothers and sisters with Bridges in San Francisco and elsewhere. As a result we were the highest paid pineapple workers on the planet by far, and so could not compete anymore on price. Philippines, Southeast Asia- check the can to see where it comes from.

Nothing like fresh pineapple though. If you want to know when they're ripe when the leaves come out easily from the crown the time to eat is now. I've had them all over the world, nothing ever quite like an organic Maui Gold though.

pinanas?

Myriad - grape nuts maybe? Those old kellogs cereals often have interesting origin stories.

Maui - I mostly eat dried pineapple and can't recall ever seeing origin labels. I'll check closer next time. And fresh - that should be easy. The last time I bought canned was for a dog eating his poop. He didn't like it. But he loved dried bananas!
