Pineapple (scientific name: Ananas comosus) is one of the tropical fruits. The Fujian and Taiwan regions call it Wang Pear or Wang Lai (ông-lâi), the area of Xinma is called Huang Pear, and the mainland and Hong Kong are called pineapples. There are more than 70 varieties, one of the four famous fruits of Lingnan.
Pineapple is native to the Amazon basin of Brazil and Paraguay in South America and was introduced to China from Brazil in the 16th century. It has now spread throughout the tropics. The edible part is mainly composed of an inflorescence axis with increased meat quality and a flower arranged spirally on the outer circumference. The flower is usually not strong, and the persistent flower is surrounded by a lobes into a cavity containing atrophic stamens and styles. The fibers of the leaves are very tough and can be used for fabrics, ropes, netting and paper making.
Pineapple and pineapple are biologically the same fruit. In the market, pineapple and pineapple are different varieties of fruit: after the pineapple is peeled, there is a “inner thorn” that needs to be removed; while the pineapple has no “inner thorn” after eliminating the outer skin, there is no need for a knife to draw a ditch.
