some are obvious, Orainge, because its orainge, pine apple, well i can see how that one happened. Mango? well i just finished eating one and was looking at the stone, well it seems obvious to me what purpose it served and thus it became known as the man go. Anyone got any other idea as to how fruit gets its name?

I dunno, but i always have wondered about the pineapple.. If you can explain that one to me i'll pat you on the back lol. As for the other fruits and veggies, i have no idea. But i'll be wondering along side of you for the rest of my life.

hahaha well i can sort of see the pine apple, being the ground grown fruit that would use the pine for shade and be sweet like an apple, but thats just guessing lol
