Pineapple is NOT a "simple" fruit...

Today I learnt that pineapple is a compound fruit! It is indeed composed of many diamond-shaped fruitlets fused together! Each of these fruitlets comes from a small purple flower that blooms only one day!
Could you imagine that?!

By the way, do you remember that pineapple grow quite close to the ground?
