The Pineapple is a Symbol of Southern Hospitality.
Sea Captains of colonial America brought them back from their voyages, and put one on a gatepost or porch post to let their friends know they were home and wanting to share their tales of adventure on the high seas. Fresh pineapples were set in the middle of the table at celebration dinners with friends. People began to have pineapples carved on headboards or posts used in the guest bedrooms as symbols of the highest hospitality.
