Pineapple – 3/12/19

A video has gone viral of the correct way to eat a pineapple.  Pineapples have also been controversial when it comes to eating them on pizza too!

 

Pineapples are not considered a single fruit but a group of berries that have fused together.

It takes 5 years for a pineapple plant to produce one pineapple.

75% of the world’s pineapple comes from Hawaii.

Pineapples can “eat you back.”

Fact – It is called a “multiple fruit.”

Fake – it does take 2 years though.

Fake – Since it is cheaper to grow pineapples in other countries, 75% are grown in Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.

Fact – Pineapples contain an enzyme called “bromelain”.  This enzyme breaks down proteins in your mouth. So, when you eat a pineapple, it is eating you back.
