Lachish Pineapples

Since I’ve been looking at the life and times of Hezekiah and posting photos of fruits and vegetables that are in season, I thought it would be appropriate to combine the two ideas and post a picture of pineapples from Lachish.

It was from Lachish that Sennacherib sent his officers to Jerusalem to threaten Hezekiah (2 Kings 17:17). Perhaps Hezekiah would have enjoyed a fresh pineapple more than the visit by Sennacherib’s officers.

I’ve noticed that pineapples have been in the market now for several months, I’m not sure if they are a year-round fruit or seasonal. I know that some are local and others are imported from the Dominican Republic.
