Struth, a Spooky Pine this Halloween

FAR north Queenslanders are encouraged to throw their support behind our local producers this Halloween and create an exciting new tradition, Spooky Pines.

By Peter McCullagh

Forget about the pumpkins, it’s time to take the rough leaf to tradition and create a uniquely Australian spin on this night of madness.

Grab your Queensland pineapple, helping our local producers and have a crack at carving a sweet Spooky Pine.

Queensland growers and Pure Gold Pineapples are challenging us to drop the American tradition of carving pumpkins and instead support the local pineapple industry this year.

After battling drought, fire, and hailstorms, as well as the challenges COVID-19 have presented this year, this a great way for consumers to have a little fun and support an Australian industry, as well as creating a new Australian tradition.

To get people behind the cause, limited edition Spooky Pines will be available on supermarket shelves across north Queensland throughout October.

Best of all, carving pineapples there is no wastage, simply use the flesh of the pine in your favourite recipe or enjoy it fresh.

If you do carve a Spooky Pine, be sure to upload the pictures to Facebook and tag in @PureGoldPineapplies and on Instagram hash tag #puregoldpineapples.
