The pineapple is a tropical plant native to South America, with individual flowers that fuse together to form a “multiple fruit” - a collection of fruits that merge into a single mass as they mature. Although enjoyed by cultures indigenous to the region for centuries, the pineapple was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century and quickly became a symbol of wealth and opulence.
The flesh and juice of the pineapple are enjoyed in cuisines around the world. In many tropical countries it is sold as a roadside snack, while in the west it is common addition to desserts, fruit salads, yoghurts and confectionary, as well as in some savoury dishes such as pizza and hamburgers.
