2018 Non-Profit Names Pineapples as Top Clean Food
Pineapple has been named one of the top pesticide-free foods by CNN, and is at the top of the “Clean 15” of fruits and vegetables.
According to CNN, avocados lead 2018’s clean fruits and veggies list, followed by sweet corn, pineapples, cabbage, onions, frozen sweet peas, papayas, asparagus, mangoes, eggplant, honeydew melon, kiwi, cantaloupe, cauliflower and broccoli. In addition to pineapple’s many health benefits, eating fruits that are less exposed to pesticides can reduce your exposure to cancer-causing chemicals.
Chestnut Hill Farms is adamant about practicing sustainable farming practices, including working to reduce pesticides and offer the best clean, healthy pineapple on the market worldwide.
Each year on April 22 since 1970, the importance of a clean planet and birth of the first environmental movement is honored worldwide through the celebration of Earth Day.

There is a common misconception that green pineapple is not ripe yet, however, pineapple doesn’t have to be yellow to be eaten and enjoyed. Caribbean pineapple is ripe and available year-round, but is green at certain times of the year.
Pineapple can be completely green outside but completely ripe inside. This is always hard to accept because we have a tendency to believe that all fruit will continue to ripen after harvest, as a high percentage of the fruit that we generally eat are climacteric and do continue to do so, but not pineapples.
