Pineapple factoid

Although Captain John Kidwell is credited as being the founder of Hawaii’s pineapple industry and James Dole is referred to as the “Pineapple King” for pioneering the industry in the islands, neither man was actually responsible for bringing the first pineapple to Hawaii. That credit goes to Don Francisco de Paula y Marin, a trusted advisor of King Kamehameha I who is said to have introduced the fruit to the islands in 1813.
