Legend has it that the when the Sea Captains of New England returned home, the Pineapple was hugely symbolic. The Sea Captains sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum. The Captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let friends know of their safe return from sea and the pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share food and drinks, and listen to tales of the voyage. The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries all over the world.
