He and his men landed on the Caribbeanisland of Guadalupe where the sailors enjoyed this sweet, succulentnew fruit, which had already become a staple of native feasts andreligious rites. .

In the 1600s, King Charlesposed for an official portrait while receiving a pineapple as agift. . In colonial America, hostesses would set a fresh pineapple inthe center of their dining table when visitors joined theirfamilies in their homes. Visiting was the primary means ofentertainment and cultural exchange, so the concept of hospitalitywas a central element in colonial life. The pineapple, then,symbolized the warmest welcome a hostess could extend to herguests, and then often it also served as the dessert for the meal.If the visitors spent the night, they would be given a bedroom witha bed in which pineapples had been carved on either the bedposts orthe headboard -- even if that was the master bedroom. . Creative food display became a competition among the hostesses,because it declared her personality and her family's social status.Hostesses tried to outdo one another in creating memorable diningevents. In larger, more affluent homes, the doors to the diningroom were kept closed to create an air of suspense and excitementover the preparations of the hostess. Colonial grocers sometimesrented pineapples to hostesses desperate to create a diningexperience above their financial means. Later, once that hostesshad returned the pineapple, the fruit would be sold to moreaffluent clients who could afford to actually buy and eat it.Regardless of ones financial ability to actually buy and eat thepineapple, however, visitors to the homes that displayed thepineapple felt particularly honored that the hostess had spared noexpense to secure one in their behalf. . By the Gilded Age, which was the era in which Samuel Coupleslived, through the present day, the pineapple became a familiarsymbolic image of welcome, good cheer, and warmth and affectionbetween all who dwell inside the home.
