What climate are pineapples grown in?
Pineapples are best grown in a warm climate
What we call "pinecones" were originally called "pineapples". When Europeans first encountered the fruit, the hard petals around it reminded them of a pine cone (pineapple), and the name stuck. The Tupi Indians of Brazil call pineapples "ananas" (excellent fruit), but that proved too close to the word "bananas" to catch on outside of the region.
