Pineapple Tree



The Pandanus fruit comprises a cluster of nuts, which turn orange/yellow when they are ripe and they bear more than a passing resemblance to a pineapple. More than one stranger has been tricked into thinking this is how pineapples grow.

I'll try to get a photo of a ripe fruit cluster shortly.

Perhaps I'll pay a visit to a pineapple farm as well!

The pineapple farm is great and they have a little train that you can ride on - it's at the big pineapple.

Are the pandanus fruits edible to human or beast?

How interesting. I've never seen one of these before. It does look like a pineapple.

I've seen lots of pandanus but never with fruits. That's very cool!
