Date1915
NotesOne of the early major crops in South Florida was pineapples. Seen here is the cultivation of pineapples at the Sample Farm north of Pompano, probably around 1915. Local farmers soon found that growing winter vegetables was more profitable, and largely switched to those crops by the 1920s.
