If you’re like most people, you’ve probably learned to spell “pineapple” when you see it in a recipe or a cookbook.
And that’s because the word is a combination of “pine” and “apple,” which makes the fruit a “dessert apple.”
In fact, it’s one of the more common names for the fruit.
But there are a couple of things you might not know about “pineapples.”
First, “pinefruit” is not the same thing as “piney.”
Pineapple is not actually the fruit that is sometimes spelled “pine-apple.”
Instead, the fruit is actually a type of edible pineapple that grows in the northern hemisphere.
Pineapples are native to South America, the Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand.
In this video, we’ll explain what you need to know about the fruit and how to spell it correctly.
