Finca CorsicanaWhen traveling with my group we came across Finca Corsicana. Finca Corsicana is a organic pineapple farm that grows about 38 million pineapples a year on its 3000 acre land. The Finca (farm) is owned be Collins Street Bakery in Texas. It is the worlds biggest organic pineapple farm that produces pineapples for Collins Street Bakery and Whole Foods. My group and I loved the tour of the Finca along with its enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He knew the place like the back of his hand and filled our heads with information about the plantation and about pineapples.
No pineapple tour would be complete without tasting some pineapple, and ohh did we have some pineapple. We stuffed ourselves with pineapple every time our tour guide cut a new one. I can honestly say "Best pineapples ever!", they were super sweet and juicy; we even learned how to pick one out for when we got back home.
I highly recommend going on this tour because of how much one can learn about an organic pineapple plantation and the steps they take to stay green, oh and of course because of the pineapple.
