Sea of Pineapples

What it takes for a single pineapple out of the fruit stand? Maybe not so much for a wide variety of fruits along the stretch of South Cotabato road network. However, if you will ask how many mouths are being fed by pineapples in this part of Mindanao, it really makes sense.

We visited the DOLE plantation in Polomolok, South Cotabato, Philippines. It was like a Pacific Ocean of pineapples.

Who would ever expect a community in the middle of the pineapple plantation than a first time visitor like me? Thanks, indeed, to the greatness of the people who brought us here.
