Eating a pineapple -- smelling like tropical sunshine, summer during a northern winter freeze. Prinkly outer skin and sharp leaves hide the sweet and juicy flesh inside, an ingenious disguise for us pineapple predators. Whoever first thought to open up this strange looking vegetation must have been amazed, as I am today.
Things I learned that I didn't know before:
- You can't smell a citrus smell when the peel in intact, only upon scratching or opening the skin
- Each segment is not the same size
- There were 11 segments in my clementine, but 9 in one I ate yesterday
- I found a seed in one of the segments but none in the other segments
