Often called the king of fruits, a pineapple takes almost three years to reach maturation. The pineapple plant’s flowers produce berries that come together around the core, so the pineapple is not just one fruit. Aside from its skin, the whole pineapple is edible, even its core. Pineapples make a great addition to tropical drinks, fruit salads and even wine. Pineapples are available year round, with a peak season of January to July.
