Costa Rica is the world’s largest pineapple exporter. In 2015, these exports were worth USD 821.9 million, accounting for nearly 50% of the global export value. Pineapples grow on the ground inside a waist-high plant with leaves that are identical to those shooting from the pineapple’s top. Each plant produces one pineapple, a process that takes 14 months.
