You’ve Been Always Eating Pineapple Wrong, Stop It!

You’ve Been Always Eating Pineapple Wrong, Stop It!


Ok, sit down for a moment, because you’re
about to find out that you’ve been lied to your whole life. Pineapples aren’t pinecones and they aren’t
apples! Just kidding, that was obvious, everybody
knows that they’re just berries. Didn’t know that? Also, you don’t need to cut them to eat
them. Surprised? Well, looks like pineapples are not what they
seem! Wow, guess it’s a good day for a groundbreaking
truth reveal. But yeah, you’ll have to deal with it: pineapples
are berries that are really easy to eat! To be fair, you only need a knife to cut off
the top of the pineapple – the part with those spiky leaves. Then all that’s left is to pick off separate
fruitlets and enjoy. They’re easy to recognize: on the outside
of pineapple, it looks like it has some kind of scales, which are actually berries, fused
together during the growth and ripening process. It has a lot more in common with a raspberry
than with an apple if you think about it. Hope now it’s easier for you to finally
call it a berry! Also, those scale-like outsides of pineapples
are the exact reason for its weird name. The thing is, pineapple was first found by
European explorers somewhere around 1664 in South America. By that time, pine cones, as we know them
now, were called pine apples instead. The name was changed to “pine cones” in
1694, but pineapples, which resembled pine cones to the explorers, have kept their original
name to this very day. This whole story about names brought 30 years
of pure confusion: which pineapples are tasty, and which will probably crack your teeth if
you try to take a bite? The fact that pineapple can be eaten that
effortlessly shook the internet with a huge wave of viral videos demonstrating it. But almost nobody took a step forward to explain
why it’s possible. Every fruit, vegetable, and berry was once
a flower on a plant. In the case of pineapple, it resembles just
a bunch of thick waxy blades of grass, growing from a joint root. In the center of this bunch, beautiful bright
red, lavender or purple flowers will start to grow. They are gathered together like a clover flower,
but in huge numbers – up to 200 flowers on each plant. And each one of them will produce a single
berry in the future. Then those berries will just merge into each
other, forming the pineapple we all know. For the fruit to fully grow it takes an astonishing
3 years! That makes it quite clear why this delicious
stuff costs so much! Personally, aside from the aforementioned
cost, the only thing that was stopping me from eating pineapples every day was the long
process of peeling and cleaning. But now that it’s not such a pain, it’s
great news, because pineapples hold some unique qualities a lot of us need in our lives. First of all, they are literally jam-packed
with vitamins and other important nutrients. They contain so much vitamin C, for example,
that they can ease the symptoms of a cold or even the flu! Pineapples are also really good in providing
you with antioxidants and a very special enzyme called bromelain which helps your digestion
by dissolving proteins that are hard to digest otherwise. For the same reason, pineapple juice is often
used to soften meat while cooking, and to give it a unique sweet tang, of course! Oh and one important thing! Pineapples are the best-selling fruit in the
whole of their biological family! Even though they are slow to grow, they live
for over 50 years and they are quite easy to maintain. They can spawn roots from any separate part. Even if you drop the sliced top of a pineapple
on the ground and forget about it – it would still try to grow! But of course, pineapples are tropical plants
and need high amounts of both moisture and warm sunlight. Another thing most people get wrong about
pineapples is that they don’t need to ripen more at home; they will stay as they were
harvested no matter what. It’s no use looking at the color of pineapple
from the outside – it can be green, brown or orange but there will be absolutely no
difference in taste. It’s hard to believe that the simplicity
of preparing pineapple was a secret for so long. But there are even more foods that we were
absolutely wrong about! Kiwi is much easier to eat without peeling
off its fuzzy skin at all – just cut off one side and enjoy it with a spoon. You know, like with a boiled egg! But it’s green… and hairy… You get the idea! And if you really want it sliced, slice it
first, then peel the skin off – you’ll thank me later for how clean that’ll be. Speaking of eggs, did you know that you don’t
have to pick every little scale of eggshell from it? Its way easier to just press a boiled egg
against a table and roll it a couple of times from side to side. The eggshell will almost fall off by itself,
and there will be almost no annoying little scales left after – just don’t push too
hard. Cleaning a strawberry using a straw? How come so few of us know about this trick? Well, yeah, you can put a straw through a
berry and its green cap pops off just like that! What a shocker. And yeah, sucking the strawberry pulp from
a straw with a distinctive “thump!” sound is a lot of fun! Pistachios are generally known to be difficult
to open. The ones that don’t fully open are a pain
and better left alone. That’s a rule. Period. Well, not so fast! It turns out they can be easily opened with
the shell of one that’s already been eaten. Most of us are so distant from nature that
we can mess up even peeling a banana. But monkeys sure know the deal, and they peel
bananas from the bottom; not from the top like we do. It’s actually much easier this way as you
can see. Stop throwing away the center of the apple! Seriously, you won’t even notice it if you
eat an apple from the bottom up. This way only a couple of seeds will be left
with no tasty apple pulp missed. Try it, it’s definitely worth it. Afraid of a pomegranate? I was too, but no more: it’s now known that
the key to seeding it is just a bowl of water. When you do it underwater, all the bitter
membranes will float off from the seeds and splashes of ruby juice won’t ruin your kitchen. Hey, maybe you know some secret ways to prepare
or eat some kind of food that nobody else around you knows of? It would be great if you’d share it in the

  1. Some of these recommendations make me feel like my phone is recording my daily life. Either taking videos,pictures or sound recordings. 🤔😐

  2. Liese European can't discover something that was already there,,, why do European always want to take credit for Island Fruits ,,THEY DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE FRUIT,,,The Islander the indigenous people discover and plant their own fruits,,,,, enough already of the lies,,WHITE WASH LIES JUST LIKE HISTORY,, do you guys even want to colonise the fruit

  3. Just so you know…
    Its a bromeliade from Hawaii. And they DO continue to ripen after being picked otherwise they would never go rotten in the fruit bowl!! Fruit goes rotten because the sugars develop and then begin to form alcohol. In the early stages of this process its called ripening!! Their skin colour depends on the variety not how ripe it is until its well and truly overripe at which time the sugars turn the skin yellow but the fruit becomes soft. On most of the newer sweeter varieties, the segments can't be pulled apart until the whole fruit is pretty over ripe.
    As always you can't believe all you hear.

  4. the wrong is when you eat it you got sick,, evryone has its own way of eating,, as long as you're happy eating it,,😋

  5. You say different pineapple have only one taste … you're wrong.. we have pineapple of different taste.. some are sweet and some are sour.. some just tasteless… Do more research when you're trying to make a video and we do harvest every year without waiting 3 years.. 👎

  6. there are many pineapple in tropical countries like the PHILIPPINES 💖 (especially in Bukidnon woohoo 😊💖)

  7. In Philippines when it is season of pineapple, you can buy this stuff for $1 for as much as 5 pcs.

  8. It was not found by Europeans , they where actually found by the indigenous people who used them to make twine, cloth and also for medical purposes. So now you know

  9. I know about using spoon on kiwi, I open bananas right way as you mentioned, but pineapple thanks for the tip..btw pineapples are cheap in the phils…

  10. You should have directly told us how to eat the pineapple, this could have been less that a minute video. Anyways I'm still eating my pineapple like I always do. Chew them.

  11. It just got viral a month ago plus that's not how you eat pineapple you eat it with no skin but it's a bit right but just because the video of the Chinese peiling the skin of the pineapple doesn't mean it was the real original. Thing to eat pineapple some of your video's are wrong🤦‍♀️

  12. ** Time saver alert ** : the real part which matches the title of this video is from 0:40 – 0:49 . thank me later

  13. Most overlooked-best self defence weapon.

    Nobody is going to police saying they attacked someone and got beaten off with a pineapple.

    KIWI is a flightless bird or slang for a person from New Zealand.

    There is no such fruit as a "kiwi"-it is called a kiwifruit.

    I suppose you eat ba or app or ora

    (Banana,apple,orange

  14. am i going to chew/get a bite with my right /left/front teeth … is there any law to eat then how….

  15. It's not that costly in our place. In fact, ours are the sweetest – Taste the Queen Pineapple in Ormoc City, Philippines! 🍍🍍

  16. Well, the fruit doesn't take 3 yrs to mature! It takes 3 yrs for a new pineapple plant to fully mature and bear fruit. Then it bears fruit every year after.

  17. Not wrong at all do what woks for you, in addition you showed things which are unrelated to your topic. I dare you, eat your pineapple that way and see how successful it is.

  18. obviously you haven't actually tried this , it doesn't work , it destroys the whole pineapple trying to pull one section off

  19. Euros did not discover pineapple in the 1600s because it was already a source of food for indigenous people lol

  20. Next topic : you're sitting in a chair at the office??, is wrong… Try sleeping in your boss chair… I Know right… You gain energy and relaxed… No need to work anymore…

  21. Pineapple was found by some european explorer in south america?? WRONG!!!!
    IT WAS OBVIOUSLY FOUND BY A SOUTH AMERICAN WHO KNOWS WHEN.

  22. There are no right or wrong way to eat a pineapple. Each country has their own way of eating it. others might eat the pineapple leaves or even its roots. Who knows? XD

  23. I'm being honest here but I dislike the new intro.

    Reasons: 1. It's easy, too simple, I could just take a few light bulb pics and put them together with a song. 2. It's not self made, I mean like all other channels have their intros self made and I just think their making of this intro is lazy and bad and too simple, and doesn't match the channel. 3. The intro isn't fluent and customized well, to give a fresh feeling to it.
