Weird pineapple for New Year!

Post  Guest on Mon Dec 30, 2013 1:05 pm





The above is what a pine apple should look like.
We placed pineapple in tables for good luck in new year...and I found this in a pineapple plantation, Weird fruit with one body and more than 100 crowns...maybe good for 100% times the good luck.

Happy new year!



















A bountiful and a Happy New year to everyone!

Strange!

I wonder if you grow out the little plants if they will produce more crested fruit like this???


Happy New Year!

This is real a weird freak of nature Russell.

I saw some before with 3 to 8 crowns, but with more than 100 crowns spiraling in one body it is something very different. I wonder what happens here biologically. It came from a normal Pineapple plant.

It's the same as those "crested" crown of thorns/euphorbias. It happens in woody plants, like witch's broom, fairly regularly. This one is extreme though!

Look up cristate growth or fasciation. It occurs on many plants when the growing tip is damage in some way.

Who wants some veggie?
Mother nature is really very weird.


Please Don't find this obscene ( Though it is). It is a scientific example of how lewd mother nature can be.... sometimes.

Hello Jun – Your Pineapple is indeed remarkable!  Many have recommended that you cultivate the pups which have grown on your fruit to create additional cristate fruits.  Sadly, the probability of producing cristate fruit on non-cristate pups is very low.  These types of anomalies arise with regular frequency among vascular plants, particularly in those species which exhibit succulence.

Thanks as well for the amusing image you posted of a passion flower fruit.  It gave me a start and a laugh!  This is an image of fruit from a Passiflora quadragularis which occurred in Brazil, specifically in Soa Jose de Jibamar.  The typical shape of these fruits is oblong or ovoid, but there are many cases in which the fruits have grown with a restricted central region in which both the proximal and distal regional are inflated.  This one is certainly interesting!  Just as with your pineapple it is probably not reproducible (emphasis on probable – because the causality of cristates is well known whereas the causality of the fruit development variance is certainly not…)

Your post reminds me that long ago I was looking at electron micrographs of trichomes from Solanum leaves and came across one which evoked images very similar to those evoked by the photo you posted.  After having laughed for quite a while and having shared the image with friends, I was struck by the natural conservatism of nature and more so by the very human predilection to assign meaning – whether relevant or not – to images that seem, even vaguely, similar to objects familiar to us.  

This last realization is fundamental to bonsai!  When we see a bonsai we do not see a tree, we actually see a plant in a pot, but our brain, functioning as a very efficient difference engine, sees a tree.  And consequently, our mind sees a tree!  We perceive a tree – and we imaginatively transport ourselves to be there with the tree, in the scene.

IBC readers may be interested to know that the grower of this Passiflora in Brazil lacked no savvy!  When she discovered the oddly shaped fruits she instantly started charging an entrance and photography fee!  Good on her!

Thanks again Jun!
David B.
