pineapple,

common name for one member of and for the Bromeliaceae, a family of chiefly epiphytic herbs and small shrubs native to the American tropics and subtropics. The spiny leaves of various species of the genus Ananas yield a hard fiber called gravata in South America and piña, or pineapple cloth, in the Philippines. A. sativa is the cultivated pineapple. The fruit, whose spiny skin is yellowish brown when ripe, is sweet and juicy; it is topped by a distinctive rosette of green leaves. It is grown throughout warmer regions. Thailand, the Philippines, and Brazil are the largest producers of canned pineapple. A compound derived from pineapple, branelain, is used as an anti-inflammatory. Species of Ananas, Tillsandia, and other genera are sometimes cultivated as ornamentals. Spanish mossSpanish moss,

People are actually growing pineapples in their houses and yards up north. www.EdibleLandscaping.com is shipping more and more exotic fruits to all kinds of people. Each plant has over 200 flowers, the individual fruits of these flowers join together to produce what we call a pineapple. The tough middle stem contains bromelain, an enzyme that digests protein. This tough stem can be broken down in a strong blender like a Vitamix. Both root and fruit can be eaten. Great antiinflammatory. Used to help macular degeneration (eyes), digestion, sinus, arthritis, energy, bones, teeth, gums, blood clots, nausea, morning sickness. Stems used for cancer. Some people “fast” on nothing but pineapple for several weeks to expel worms, parasites and cleanse the body. Also great sugar substitute.
