Lemons

First, let’s talk about both the fruits. Now, the origins of lemon are unknown. Lemons were first grown in Assam, northern Burma (now Myanmar), and China. A study into its genetic origin reported that it’s actually a hybrid between bitter orange and citron. There are four wild true breeding trees – key lime, pomelo, citron, and tangerine. All other varieties of citrus are derived from these four. Botanists are even doubtful that one or more of those four may also be a hybrid species! This means that orange is also human-made. It is a hybrid of pomelo and mandarin. So much for eating fruits because they’re natural!

Now let’s talk about pineapples. This may appear as a surprise, but pineapple is actually a berry. Rather, it’s an amalgamation of a group of berries. You may be a little confused right now. It’s hard to think of a pineapple as a bunch of berries, right? Well, firstly let’s see what a berry actually is. A berry is said to be a fleshy fruit that contains no stone and is produced from a single flower containing a single ovary. Berries include grapes, currants, tomatoes, eggplants, and bananas. Strangely enough, strawberries and raspberries are not berries.

When the pineapple plant grows, it produces several flowers within a small space, producing fruits. Due to the close proximity between each fruit or berry, they tend to merge together into one large fruit. The name ‘pineapple’ is simply because it looks like a pine cone and hangs from a tree like an apple. Pineapples are not related to apples or pomes!
