What is Pineapple?
The pineapple is a tropical fruit with a large, round, oblong body and textured and patterned skin. When unripe, the pineapple is green and when ripe it exhibits yellow tones and smells sweet. At its top, the pineapple has rough green stalks, called the crown, which must be removed along with the skin, before eating. The flesh of the pineapple is yellow, juicy, and has a soft fibrous texture. The flavor is sweet, tart and intensely fruity. The core of the fruit is removed, as it is too tough to chew properly.
