Pineapple and pineapple have different names, so the varieties are different? Don’t be confused after reading it.

Are pineapple and pineapple the same fruit? This topic is often debated.Some people think that pineapple and pineapple are different in taste and shape, and they are two different fruits. Others think that pineapple and pineapple are the same fruit, but they are different varieties, but if they are serious, these two statements are wrong.

Seriously say three little things about pineapple (pineapple):

1、The scientific name of this fruit is pineapple, commonly known as "pineapple".Botanically, it belongs to pineapple family, pineapple genus and pineapple species, so "pineapple" is the official name of others. Academically, pineapple and pineapple are one thing.

2、Why do pineapple and pineapple have two names?Pineapple originated in Brazil and was introduced to China in the 16th century. It was cultivated in Hainan Province, so it was named "pineapple" because it looks like a miniature version of jackfruit.

The pineapple in Taiwan Province Province is also imported from Brazil, but the local people see that its leaves are scattered piece by piece, which looks like the tail of a phoenix and the shape of a pear, so it is named pineapple.

Tips: Jackfruit is a fruit introduced from the western regions in China very early. It has been recorded in books in the Southern and Northern Dynasties, and it can be regarded as a "native fruit".

3、Why is there a dispute between pineapple and pineapple?Although pineapple and pineapple are two different names of the same thing, like potatoes and potatoes, tomatoes and tomatoes, they have actually been divided in the market.

Because pineapples have large internal spines and are inconvenient to eat, Taiwan Province has introduced a kind of "eyeless pineapple", which is relatively small and shallow, easy to peel and eat, and has a more delicate and sweet taste. It is very popular in the market, and gradually this kind of "eyeless pineapple" is mainly planted in Taiwan Province.In order to distinguish two different pineapples in the market, they are subtly called pineapple and pineapple respectively, so in fact, pineapple and pineapple are two different fruits in the fruit market.

Let’s get to know the difference between pineapple and pineapple from the market point of view.

1. The shapes of leaves are different.

The leaves of pineapple are very sharp, because there are many serrations on the leaves of pineapple, while the leaves of pineapple are smooth and generally have no serrations on the edges. In fact, you can tell the difference between pineapple and pineapple at a glance from here.

2, the meat thorn is different

When you see peeled pineapples in the market, you need to remove the flesh spines and cut out a series of "gaps". However, peeled pineapples, because they have no flesh spines or are relatively small, only need simple peeling, and their appearance is relatively smooth.

3. It tastes different

When eating pineapple, most of the time it is cut into large pieces and soaked in salt water for a period of time before it is suitable for eating, otherwise it will sting and taste sour and sweet; Pineapple, on the other hand, does not need salt water to soak, so it can be eaten directly and tastes sweeter.

Tips: Why do pineapples need to be soaked in salt water?This is actually because pineapple contains "bromelain", which is evolved to resist herbivores. When eating pineapple, this bromelain will digest protein, dissolve everything in your mouth and induce tingling, so some people say, "When you eat pineapple, pineapple is eating you."

Salt water can inhibit the activity of bromelain and make this tingling disappear. At the same time, cooking pays attention to "salt can lead to sweetness". A small amount of salt will make people feel sweeter, but the actual sweetness will not increase. This is just the illusion of taste contrast.

Not just pineapples and pineapples.
