Pineapple is a unique and wonderful fruit. It grows on a rather short, swarthy wide-leaved plant found in deep southern climates and takes several years to fruit. The pineapple fruit itself takes about six months to fully mature. Pineapples are the second most popular variety of tropical fruit that is sold in North America next to bananas. Pineapples are a beautiful balance of both tart and sweet that work well in many savory recipes or dessert recipes. Pineapples contain plenty of nutrients, especially manganese, vitamin C, and copper. Pineapple is also good for your digestion, and provides important anti-inflammatory benefits and perhaps most importantly, the enzyme of bromelain, which is an important health-promoting compound.
