Pineapple (Ananas, Latin) is a genus of herbaceous tropical plants of the Bromeliaceae family.

Pineapple is a herbaceous perennial plant with a strongly shortened stalk and a dense rosette of leaves. Leaves rigid linear xiphoid long 50-120 cm and width 3-6 cm, at the edges dentate, prickly. Adult plants can grow up to 1 meter in height and up to 2 meters in diameter. From the root rosette of the leaves a fleshy stem grows, on top of which a flower spike is formed up to 30-60 cm in length.

In the tropical regions of America: Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela, Colombia, there are eight kinds of pineapple; widely cultivated in the tropics and subtropics of both hemispheres. The leading areas for pineapple production are Hawaii and Azores, as well as the Philippines, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Ghana, Guinea. The plantations in India expanded considerably. In Russia, pineapples can be grown in greenhouses. In the greenhouse collections of 4-6 species, 2-3 species are used in indoor culture.
