13 November

Canned Pineapple Anniversary Day, the 13th of November, marks the first shipment of canned pineapple from Hawaii in 1895.

CooksInfo.com is uncertain, though, if this is actually true. It certainly is much quoted, and 1895 as a year seems plausible, but we haven't been able to find yet any evidence to back this up. To confuse matters, some sources say that this is when canned pineapple first "arrived", but don't say arrived "where"; others say "shipped" (though again, not shipped from where, to where.)

Reputedly, this was also the day in 1898 when Alfred W. Eames, founder of Del Monte, arrived in Hawaii to start growing pineapple.

In any event, is there a better day to make that legendary dessert, a Pineapple-Upside Down Cake?
