The scientific name for the pineapple is “Ananas comosus“. In Hawaiian, a pineapple is called “hala kahiki” because of their resemblance to the local fruit “Hana”.
One of the things Hawaii is famous for is its pineapple production. Pineapple is a delicious fruit and is known worldwide for its sweet taste. The fruit was first called "anana," a Caribbean word for "excellent fruit." Hawaiians called it "halakahiki," which means "foreign fruit."
