The pineapple is also known as ananas, which in Tupi means "excellent". As excellent as fresh pineapple is, it's sort of hard to peel. Use a sharp knife! (Trivia 1: The surface of all pineapples are based on Fibonacci numbers. Trivia 2: Pineapples can weigh up to nine pounds!) The leaves of the pineapple make nice, yet inedible, garnish.
