The Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant with edible multiple fruit consisting of coalesced berries and it is the most economically important plant in the Bromeliaceae family. The pineapple is named for its resemblance to the pine cone. Pineapples may be cultivated from a crown cutting of the fruit, possibly flowering in 20–24 months and fruiting in the following six months.
