The first encounter between a European and a pineapple occurred in 1493, during Christopher Columbus' second voyage to the Caribbean. Lowering his anchor off the volcanic island of Guadaloupe, Columbus and crew went ashore to inspect a deserted Carib village. Amidst the jungle foliage and wooden pillars, they came upon cook pots filled with human body parts. Nearby were piles of freshly gathered vegetables and fruits, including pineapples. Columbus passed on the exotic meat, but ate the pineapple.
