Ditch the pumpkin this Halloween, here’s how to carve a Spooky Pine!

Forget the pumpkin this Halloween, support our Queensland pineapple growers and get behind the latest Aussie tradition of a Spooky Pine!

Pure Gold is asking families to swap the pumpkins for pineapples this Halloween and embrace a fun new Aussie tradition of Spooky Pines. Unlike pumpkins, carving pineapples doesn’t leave any waste. Simply use the flesh of the pine in your favourite recipe or enjoy it fresh.

Anthony Dobson, General Manager, Tropical Pines, said, “This is our fourth year of Spooky Pines and we’re thrilled that Aussies have embraced this new tradition that supports local farmers. We can’t wait to see what spooky creations people come up with this Halloween.”

And the farmers would love to see your kids’ creations! Share any pineapple lanterns to their Facebook and Instagram pages.

Happy carving and happy Halloween!
