A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Thursday 27 November 2008


Last month I posted a picture of a "pineapple tree" in jest, with a promise to post one of a real pineapple some time. It took a while to find one in a similar stage of unripedness (if that's a word) to the Pandanus fruit.

The pineapple is a member of the Bromeliad family, and the fruit grows from the centre of the plant.

If I remain diligent, I'll find one that's ripened to the familiar golden yellow for a future day.

Most amazing and delicious fruit. I didn't know it was a bromeliad; I've learned something today!
