Pineapple Flood in Mysore

My son Nick is in Mysore doing yoga at present and this flood of pineapples caught his eye recently at a local market.

From Madhur Jaffrey's splendid new book Curry Made Easy Vegetarian I have recently learnt that pineapples came to India in the 15th century with Portuguese traders and first landed in Kerala where the locals disdainfully declared them to be 'the jackfruit of the donkey'
But they have since taken them to their hearts.
