The 'Pinecone Fruit'

I recently hosted a tropical themed dinner party which was a lot of fun. I decided to take a few pictures of the pineapple before cutting it up to serve.

I learned a few interesting facts about the pineapple from ' []'…

- Pineapple is one of the world’s favorite tropical fruits. First called “anana”, a Caribbean word for “excellent fruit”, the name “pineapple” came from European explorers who thought the fruit looked like a pinecone with flesh like an apple.

- You can grow a pineapple plant by twisting the crown of a store bought pineapple, allowing it to dry for 2-3 days, and then planting it
