The word "Pineapple," is derived from the word pina, which was used to describe a pine cone by the Spanish. Later, it was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands which are now the leading producers of this fruit. Today, in the United States the pineapple can be marketed as fresh or canned and it is most widely used as tropical canned fruit in recipes. (Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition, 1992)

Varieties

There are four types of pineapples mainly found in the marketplace. These include the Gold, smooth Cayenne, Red Spanish and Sugar Loaf. They are sold fresh and canned and all have a sweet flavor. The Gold variety features an extra sweet flavor, golden color, and higher vitamin C content.

Selecting

Select pineapples with a nice fragrant smell. If possible choose pineapples that have been jet shipped from Hawaii or Central America because they will be the freshest. Avoid those pineapples with sour or fermented odors. It is really ripe if you can easily pull one of the leaves out of the top.

Storing

Cross section of pineapple

Store at room temperature for 1 or 2 days before serving to allow the pineapple to become softer and sweeter. Store in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days or cut pineapple into chunks and store for up to 7 days. Cut up pineapple also freezes well.

A pineapple

A Pineapple is an item used in Cooking (especially Gnome cooking) and Farming. It cannot truly be considered a food item, since players cannot eat it. However, a pineapple is used as an ingredient to make drinks such as the fruit blast and pineapple punch[1].

Players can also use a knife on a pineapple to turn it into four pineapple rings (which heal 2 hitpoints each) or pineapple chunks. Either of these can be consumed on their own or used in making pineapple pizzas.

Where to obtain

Players can pick pineapples from plants found in tropical areas, such as near the entrance to Brimhaven Dungeon[2] or near the start of the Ape Atoll Agility Course[3].

Members can grow their own pineapple tree via the Farming skill (see below). This provides a source of free pineapples that may be more conveniently-placed than wild pineapple plants.

Players can also buy pineapples from the Grand Tree in the Tree Gnome Stronghold[4]; Hudo and Heckel Funch sell them for 2 coins each, and have an inventory stock of 10. Arhein in Catherby will also sell pineapples for 2 coins each, but he has a limited stock of 40 per day (RuneScape server time). Players must talk to him for this, and not trade with him directly.

Players can also buy (and sell) pineapples on the Grand Exchange. When this feature was first released, pineapples were 450 coins each, but this has now moderated. Pineapples were originally sold on charter ships, but are no longer sold there due to the Shop Improvement update of 2 October 2007.

Another great way to obtain pineapples is by killing kurasks, located in the slayer dungeon, who routinely drop 3 or 4 noted pineapples at a time. A full task of 150 kurasks can net an adventurer upwards of 100 pineapples.

Providing that the Karamja Diary has been completed, a pirate named Dell Monti, located around the Brimhaven house portal, will give players 40 free pineapples per day.

Farming

Members can grow a pineapple tree from a pineapple seed with level 51 Farming[5]. A gardener will watch over it for a payment of 10 watermelons[6].

Players can use pineapples to make supercompost[7], and they are popular for this purpose because they can be easily and cheaply obtained. Players can also use 10 pineapples to pay a gardener to watch over a growing papaya tree[6].

Trivia

  • Even though the option of "Eat" is present for a whole pineapple, it will not allow the player to, saying that they should first cut it up. Watermelons function in a similar way.
