What Pineapple herb Is:

When Christopher Columbus first encountered the pineapple in Guadeloupe in the early 1490s, he dubbed it "the pine of the Indies," an apt description for a fruit that looks like an overgrown green pinecone. Pinas, as they're called in many Spanish speaking countries, soon found their way around the world, although they didn't reach Hawaii, now a major producer, until 1813. What we call the fruit is in fact a mass of flower heads that grow around one of the plant's stems. Each of those nubs on the peel is the dried-up remnant of a purple flower. In Central America, people sometimes cook and eat the long, tender, swordlike leaf shoots, although most of us prefer what's inside that knobby flower complex. The medicinal interest comes mostly from a proteolytic phytochemical called bromelain, which is present only in modest quantities or almost absent from the fruit.
