Hi Steemians,

I was a little absent from this beautiful platform, but I have returned to share again with all of you

Today I want to tell you a little about this curious and delicious fruit, like tropical pineapple

Pineapple is a well-known fruit for being very refreshing and having some very interesting properties, as well as substances with diuretic action, which helps in the digestion and metabolization of food

It seems that the pineapple is not fruit, but hundreds of fruits fused together. The plant of the pineapple, for being of the family Bromeliaceae (known as bromelias), the flowers that will give the fruits grow around a stem forming the so-called floral escape. When each flower is transformed into fruit and begin to grow, they leave no space between them and end up joining and giving the appearance of a single fruit.
