As far as I’m concerned, pineapple is the aristocracy of fruit. But don’t let its royal appearance fool you. Underneath its regal crown lies sweetly sensual fruit that can take your breath away.
The fruit of an herbaceous plant believed to have its origins in Brazil, the pineapple belongs to the Bromeliaceae family. Interestingly, the pineapple is one of the few plants in this family that doesn’t grow on trees…and is the only plant in this family that bears edible fruit.
