Native to South America, pineapples can now be found across the planet.

The fruit produced by this shrub is a common part of many cuisines, both as a standalone fruit, as a side dish, and for its juices in cooking. This fruit is actually a collective of numerous berries, each forming from an individual flower and growing together into a single fruit.

However bizarre its creation, the Pineapple leshy is far less complicated. It is a master chef, and loves to design delicious new meals using exotic meats.

Providing the Pineapple leshy with new types of food to experiment with can earn you a spectacular meal, while failing to do so could leave you as the main course.

The fruit of the pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which digests protein and in strong concentrations can be used as a meat tenderizer.

Treatments using bromelain have even been used to remove dead and damaged skin from burn victims! Keep that in mind the next time you bite into an unsuspecting pineapple – it may just eat you back!
