I have seen its large scale cultivation on the higher hill slopes of Kolli hills and few other places in TN. 
As per the link given below, Kerala, Karnataka, West Bengal and NE Indian states are the major producers of Pineapple.
And, "Mauritious" variety seems to be the best edible variety which is widely cultivated in Kerala.

Of course, most of the Pinaple selling in Bangalore come from Kerala.
There is a market for Pinaple in central Kerala near my house. It is
Vazhakkulam near Thodupuzha/Muvattupuzha. Now the cultivation has come
down considerable because the market is very inconsistent. Mostly,
pineapple is cultivated as inter-crop during first 3 years of Rubber
planting.
