I agree with Veronica. But, I caught something in her text, that I
think might not be true. A pineapple is not a fruit, as it is obtained
from an inflorescence - sort of many fruits fused to form a single
structure. Or am I wrong? Again, the cashew-nut can be considered as a
fruit as well and not just as seed. The cashew fruit is the swollen
pedicel, I believe.
