Pineapple is a fruit.

botanical information:

    Botanical name: Ananas comosus

    Common name: pineapple

    Pineapple is a source of iodine.

    See also Chinese herbalism below for Chinese gender and Chinese flavor.


    Pineapple has the number four (4) lowest pesticide load of 45 common fruits and vegetables studied in 2006 by the Environmental Working Group and is therefore a food that can be purchased conventionally-grown when organic isn“t available. The EWA explains, “While washing and rinsing fresh produce may reduce levels of some pesticides, it does not eliminate them. Peeling also reduces exposures, but valuable nutrients often go down the drain with the peel. The best option is to eat a varied diet, wash all produce, and choose organic when possible to reduce exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.”
    According to USDA and FDA tests on commercially grown foods collected between 2000 and 2005, pineapple has a 7.7% (percentage) of samples tested with detectable pesticides, a 0.6% (percentage) of samples with two or more pesticides, an 0.1 average number of pesticides found in a sample, an average of 0.002 parts per million of all pesticides found, and 7 different pesticides found in use growing pineapple. These toxic pesticides don’t apply to organic foods.


    Storage: Eat pineapple within five days of purchase.
