    That pineapple Chet Greene has in his hands, I hope those are not the same Antigua black pineapple that Gaston Browne spoke so negatively about tasting bitter and ain’t good for our economy to continue to cultivate the pineapple 🍍 farm. Or again, it could be the pineapple 🍍 Gaston speaks about so tasty growing in Dominica. I hope Chet has balls enough to stands up to Gaston and let him know that our Antigua black pineapple 🍍 stays and the pineapple field in Cades Bay will be in full operations before the ends of 2023.
