After dividing social media into two camps with the pineapple on pizza debate, the divisive fruit is back and going viral again. A video that is gaining a lot of attention online might make you question everything you though you knew about eating pineapples. It shows a way to eat pineapples that you may not have seen before - and it has left people stunned.
The video shows a woman 'peeling' a pineapple - pulling chunks of the fruit away in sections to eat. The pineapple appears to have been cut in half.
Watch the video below:

Since being shared online, the video has collected over 17 million views on Twitter alone. It has also elicited a ton of reactions, most from people shocked by a hitherto-unknown way of eating pineapples:
I was born to know how to eat this fruit...... after 29 long years. https://t.co/0dFMu4VprI— Good Bye (@Goodbyena2019) March 9, 2019

Some tried the method for themselves:
Saw it yesterday, tried it today... works really well for eating. Thanks for sharing.— Uhtred of Bebbanburg (@ThinkersPad) March 10, 2019

Just tried it. Fake news. Sore fingers. Kitchen is a mess. It kind of works but it's useless.— Perrete (@ChuchoIT) March 8, 2019
And others claimed that the method worked, but came with the caveat that the pineapple had to be ripe:
I feel like it has to be a certain degree of ripeness would have to be present for this to work so perfectly. Caveat Emptor.— High Quality Cassee™ (@MissCassee) March 8, 2019
And one Twitter user explained that the peel and eat method was possible because pineapples are actually berries fused together. "As the fruit grows the individual berries coalesce together. Each 'eye' is a single individual berry. They may seem fused together, but if you start from the top, you can pluck each eye one by one," he explained.
This is how a baby pineapple looks like. At this point you can clearly see its distinctive berry feature. Compare it with raspberries. They look (in one way or another) similar. The difference is, raspberries do not grow big. pic.twitter.com/KPVodbTlBJ— Mohammad Aidil bin Ali (@_mohammadaidil_) March 6, 2019
