Erhu Pineapple Farm is located at Erhu, Yilan, an area surrounded by mountains on three sides, and adjacent to a plain on the other side. It is a simple rural village named “lake (hu)” but in fact there is no lake around. As the lake water ran dry, the landform has been washed out by the ravine, and the gravel soil is suitable for cultivating pineapples. It is the only place in Northern Taiwan able to grow pineapples, and it is also a pineapple production area at the highest altitude in the world. The pineapples grown here are “small and extremely sweet.” The Farm is open for pineapple picking in the mid-sixth to the late-ninth lunar month every year during the harvest season. The owner will also provide a personally guided tour of the pineapple fields so that visitors can see how the pineapples grow.
In addition, in the specially built Pineapple Museum, you can see the exhibition of information on pineapples and join DIY activities such as making pineapple pancakes, fermented bean curd with pineapples, pineapple jam, etc. The Museum also sells pineapple-related products, including pineapple enzyme, pineapple cake, pineapple vinegar, etc. Make reservation in advance, and you can enjoy a table full of “grandma style,” “pineapple-flavored dishes.” From seeing pineapples, touching pineapples, to cooking and eating pineapples, you can thoroughly enjoy your visit to Erhu!
When you come to the “Two Lakes Pineapple Pavilion”, it is hard not to be impressed by the specially built “pineapple-shaped” theme pavilion. Under the leadership of the owner Jiang Chaoqing and his son, you can learn about the pineapple ecology in the beautiful pineapple field behind the pavilion. In the mid-June to late September of the lunar calendar, when pineapples are abundant, the farm is open to picking fruits. You can wear a hat and sleeve to experience the sense of accomplishment of harvesting pineapples
