Pineapple Symbolism: Friendship & Hospitality


By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Pineapples are delicious, but did you know its image is also loaded with meaning? The tropical fruit has come to represent friendship and hospitality, which makes pineapple imagery a creative way to send a message about your brand. Pineapple symbolism has deep roots, so let’s take a quick look at how it all started.

Pineapple Symbolism: The Story

pineapple symbolism history

The pineapple has a rich tradition and its image is loaded with symbolism. The rise of the pineapple came during Colonial times when the first European explorers came in contact with the fruit. The delicious fruit quickly became a favorite but it was an expensive rarity due to its tropical nature. Pineapples would spoil on long sea voyages and it took gardeners nearly 200 years to perfect a hothouse method to grow the tropical plant outside of its natural climate.

The high demand and scarcity of the pineapple gave the fruit a reputation of royal privilege and wealth. So the ability of a hostess to have a pineapple adorn her dining table for an important event said a lot about her rank in society. Visitors knew that a host spared no expense when they were presented with pineapple-topped food and displays. Over time, the pineapple evolved to represent a sense of generous hospitality and gracious home gatherings.

Thankfully, SOBO Concepts is ready to help you bring your hospitality to the next level. Check out some of our favorite pineapple SWAG:
