Overview

Jensen Beach, Florida is proud to be the host of the 2016 Babe Ruth 12U World Series.

The pineapple is a recurring motif around Jensen Beach. The town’s affinity for the spiny fruit can be traced back to 1879, when the first pineapple slips were planted by Capt. Thomas E. Richards at his Eden homestead. John Laurence Jensen immigrated from Denmark in 1881 and set up his pineapple plantation which eventually became the town of Jensen. A mere 14 years later Jensen was shipping over 1 million boxes of pineapples each year during June and July season earning the town “Pineapple Capitol of the World”

Hard freezes, fires and financial problems contributed to the industry’s final collapse in 1920, but the legacy of this tropical fruit lives on in the signage, shop fronts and residences of Jensen Beach. This unigue history is celebrated annually during the Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival.
