A Very Aussie Halloween

Why not support our local farmers and create something a little bit different this Halloween by swapping out the pumpkin for Spooky Pineapples. Pineapple growers across Queensland are just managing to recover from years of drought only to see a huge downturn in demand for the fruit due to Covid restrictions on travel, eating out, and general resort poolside pina colada consumption.

This Halloween pineapple producers are encouraging Aussies to carve pineapple lanterns and use the flesh for a post trick or treat snack or to whip up a cool pineapple mojito after the Halloween mayhem has subsided.
