Where Can I Buy Exotic Red Pineapples and Other Exotic Pinapples?

I like pineapples and if you don't know it there are different breeds of pineapples in this world. The Maui Pineapple is great and hard to find. Sometimes they sell them at Costco but most the time not. These I think are actually Kona Sugarloaf or something, not technically a "Maui Pineapple". I think Maui Pineapple is just the company name.

I have purchased South African pineapples at Albertson's which are great but they are super small and expensive. Believe it or not at Smart & Final they used to have one from Mexico that was amazing. They don't have it anymore.

In Hawaii I once saw growing a red pineapple that I think is from the Philippines originally.

I know Melissa produce, an importer sells the South African but I think that is all.

Does anyone know where I can get some exotic pineapples, especially the red variety? Those are rare but cool. You'd think Bristol Farms or Whole Foods would but they don't. Normally they have your typical Costa Rican variety.
