The Pineapple (Ananas Cosmosus) is a large oval fruit about 12 inches long and is characterized by a very hard and scaly outer skin. The fruit is topped by a short stem from which grows a cluster of thin long leaves. The edible part of the fruit is a yellow and juicy fibrous mass, which is commonly cut into slices or cubes.
The Pineapple plant is a perennial herb with a short stem. It requires a fairly warm and humid climate to grow and today the pineapple is almost synonymous with the tropics. The product Pineapple Juice is obtained by the commercial processing of sound, mature and ripened pineapple possessing the characteristic flavor and color of pineapple.
