Pineapple is a tropical fruit which grow best under following climatic conditions;
Optimum rainfall- 1500 mm (but can grow in places with 500 mm to 5500 mm rainfall)
Soil type- Can grow on all type of soil (except heavy clay) with good drainage. Ideally soil with slight acidic with pH 5.5 to 6.0 is best.
Altitude- prefer 1500 m above sea level
Temperature- 15.5 to 35.50 degree C. Usually sensitive to extreme temperature
Performs best in the areas with humid weather and in coastal regions.

The Shomal region (Mazandaran and Gilan) seems having the ideal conditions that is required for pineapple cultivation but you have to keep in mind that the crop is very sensitive to long cold temperature. To my understanding shomal area is 1500 to 3000 m above sea level and contain both Caspian shoreline and mountainous region. If the farm is in mountainous region you have to be careful since the region have long cold winter and short mild summer which may effect the quality of fruits.

For more information please check the attached screenshot.
