pineapple In the Philippine fairy tale the pineapple appears as the "fruit with the 1000 eyes" . This number is too high, if a plant has only a maximum of 200 single flowers. It is told, the more distinctive the eye formation, the more palatable the fruit. The juicy, pleasant smelling flesh is yellow- reddish. Its middle is hard and usually not eatable. The fruit is crowned by a tuft of non-flowering high-sheets and can be used for propagation.
