Looking for an unusual gift? This one’s for you. And for the farmers, who can be given tools and training to grow pineapples! Hardier than other crops, this delicious fruit can be grown off-season, creating a valuable source of food and income year-round. Sweeeet!
"The income I earn from pineapples is very good. It’s better than the crops that I used to plant … I harvested the pineapples in March when there were no pineapples around, and when I took my pineapples to the market and I told them the price of 600-700 vatu they sold out. I saw a big difference here.”

With this gift, Oxfam can provide training to help people in places like Vanuatu grow pineapples. Pineapples are hardier than other crops and, using an innovative farming method, fruit can be grown off-season and sold at market. This means farmers make a higher profit and have a valuable source of food and income year-round.
