Maui Gold Pineapples only available in Hawaii?

Just wondering if anyone see's the gold's being sold in say Los Angeles, Seattle, or San Francisco, I get by eating the frozen pineapple chunks sold at Costco, but that's a far cry from "The Gold Standard"

We have had some show up here on the Oregon coast at a local supermarket chain. I think someone else either here or in Washington mentioned they had them recently also. The ones here were very small and not as tasty as the huge ones we get at Maui Costco but still a good, low acid pineapple.

Never see them in L.A. Trader Joe's pre-cut spears are pretty good, though, as a substitute.

I just can't justify paying huge money to purchase them online.

We've seen them at the Whole Foods here in Austin every now and then.

Just bought one last week at Safeway here in little ol' Dallas, Oregon (pop. 15,000) for $3. It was actually a decent size, but still needed several more days to fully ripen. Will probably finish off the last few morsels today.

Headed to Maui for 15 days in October!. Woohoo!!!

After a pineapple is picked, it won't ripen any further. The freshness will only diminish.
