Notable for their sweet taste, pineapples are the favorite of the tropical fruit family. The English name “pineapple” came from Spanish Explorers who said it looked like a pinecone. Pineapples are the world’s symbol for hospitality, and when presented to someone, it’s symbolic of saying “You're Perfect”. It is the only fruit that takes 18 months to grow, unlike most other fruits which take approximately 4 months. Pineapples must also be picked ripe, for they will not ripen once harvested.
