The pineapple’s characteristics

The pineapple, from the Latin ananas comosus, is a xerophyte plant (adapted to survive in a dry environment). It has an exquisite scent and many nutritional qualities.

Mouth-watering, refreshing and rich in minerals, the pineapple is an excellent source of vitamins C, A and E.


There are several dozen varieties of pineapple including:

Comosus, Extra Sweet, Cayenne, Bouteille and Victoria
