Pineapple (Ananas comosus)

Flesh-eating is not a behavior reserved for zombies and maggots – even sunshiny Pineapple can devour us. Pineapple is the only known plant to produce the protein-digesting chemical bromelain. Every time your mouth burns from Pineapple’s exquisite juices, it’s him eating you back!
