Pineapple Meaning & Symbolism
reading - words
The Pineapple is the best known member of the bromeliad family. The ancestral version thrives in the rugged Andes Mountains and deep in the hot forests of Uruguay, where the plant can grow up to two meters in diameter. It was Christopher Columbus who introduced the plant to Europe more than five centuries ago, returning to Spain (from Guadeloupe) with a pineapple. The word pineapple comes from Tupi, the language of the Tupi Indians. "Ananá" means something like "excellent fragrant fruit". The ornamental pineapple is a smaller (and inedible) version of the wild pineapple.
For the ancient peoples of the New World (New, at least, to Europeans), they recognized the pineapple symbol of friendship and hospitality. Families hang pineapples outside their homes to perfume the entrance and make it welcoming for guests. It was an edible invitation!
Colours and Shapes
Ornamental pineapples are particularly ingenious. The sleeve-shaped calyx makes for a perfect pool of water. And the rosette with its rigid spear-shaped leaves forms a beautiful system of small channels that bring moisture to the heart of the rosette. The leaves can be grey-green or green-pink. And while the fruit of the classic pineapple is yellow-green, the fruit of the ornamental version is more pinkish-red. The plant is very easy to care for: just give it a little water from time to time and it will delight you. 🍍
