Pineapples regenerate! You can plant pineapple leaves to grow a new plant. They contain the bromelain enzyme which can break down proteins, so you can use them to tenderize meat. Hawaii produces about 1/3 of all pineapples in the world. Pineapples are a cluster of hundreds of fruitlets. They take about 18-20 months to become ready to harvest. Pineapples are native to South America before Christopher Columbus discovered them in 1493. Pineapple is the only edible fruit of its kind, the Bromeliads.
