Roadside pineapples

Farm stalls isn't too rare a sight on South African roads and if you want to buy fresh fruit then these farm stalls are the place to get them from.  Locals selling fresh fruit from the side of the road is a lesser common sight, but often seen in areas where fruit are gown.  The Eastern Cape around the town of Bathurst is ideal for Pineapple growing and I found this roadside pineapple stall just outside of Grahamstown.

  3. Best is fresh and ripe and these huge beauties look both. I can almost taste it while the juice runs down my chin. Hope you stopped to make a purchase.

  5. Whenever I see pineapples it reminds me of all my trips between PE and EL... some days I'd take the top road... other days the coastal way... I loved those roads and all the great EC landscapes...
