Once known as the fruit of kings because they were only available to wealthy Europeans and natives of the tropics, pineapples are now a popular exotic fruit in the US. A member of the bromeliad family, in which edible fruits are rare, pineapples grow from three-foot tall plants that sprout a hundred or more flowers. Each flower develops into one of the scales outside of the pineapple, and the more scales or marks a pineapple has, the stronger the flavor will be. Fruit with fewer or larger scales will have a milder, sweeter taste and more juice.
