Corsicana Pineapple Plantation
The story began in Corsicana, Texas, in 1896, where the Collin Street Bakery opened. As successful sellers of fruit cakes and bakery goods, Collin Street decided to add the pineapple farm in Costa Rica, in 1991. This gave them the highest quality pineapples for their baked goods.
The plantation covers over 3,000 acres and harvests of 38 million pineapples a year.
And, there out front flies the Lone Star Texas flag. I smile.
