Pineapple Trivia

The first ever record of the word “Pineapple” dates back to 1398.

The word pineapple in English was first recorded in 1398, when it was originally used to describe the reproductive organs of conifer trees. European explorers discovered a prickly tropical fruit that they began to call pinaepples (term first recorded in that sense in 1664) because of their resemblance to what is now known as the pine cone (originally called pineapples). The term pine cone was first recorded in 1694, and was used to replace the original meaning of pineapple.

A pineapple is not a pine or an apple. Its actually a berry.

Technically, a pineapple is a mass of individual berries fused to a central stalk. If you want to be technical about it, pineapples are a berry.

A pineapple can take up to 3 years to grow and mature into a plant.

You can only receive the fruits of a pineapples labor when it has reached full maturity, which can easily take up to three years. Even still, those grown as houseplants may be reluctant to flower and set fruit at all.
