What Kind of apple isn't an apple?
A pineapple.

A rough, spiky, pine cone , pineapple is really a group of smaller fruits which have fused together around a central core. Oval-shaped, 20-30cm long and 10-15cm wide, we have a tuft of short, sharp, grey-green leaves rising from top. It is a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber. It is a source of a mineral called manganese. It is needed by our bones and for the cartilage in joints as well as the brain.

Lets draw a pineapple now.

  • Start by writing a U with its free ends coming together.
  • Now lets make leaves on top. If you want less leaves write two M. If you want more write three M in the space between edges of U.
  • Write W at the bottom of this fruit.

  • Now its time to make spikes.We can make spikes in two ways.
  • Start by writing upside down U from the bottom of this fruit. Go on doing that till you reach the top of this fruit. Write small Cs or Us it between each.
  • For the second more easier type of spike we make a number of chis cross lines and write a small U in each segment.
Color. Coloring pineapple can be a little tricky. What I usually do is use a little bit of orange and yellow and color pineapple randomly in few places. Then I use green to fill in rest of the body. Let me know how that works for you!! I will appreciate your comments and they will certainly encourage me!!
Now lets end with a pineapple joke.
What do you get when you cross an apple with a Christmas tree?
A pineapple :-D!!

Time for a pineapple tongue twister.
Passionate purple parakeets and pink pigs pleasantly pluck pears and pineapple in pretty perfect paradise while painting a portrait of parrots and papaya, but I am in painfully painful pain sitting on pine, eating pie and plotting a plan to punish Pim for pinching and poking Papa's parched patched pants. (Try saying that 5 times fast!)
