The world's most expensive pineapple has been produced.

According to the Daily Mail, the spiked fruit was grown in horse manure using Victorian garden methods, including 30 tonnes of straw and equine urine.

Matured at Cornwall's Lost Gardens of Heligan, it is one of eight pineapples which cost £1,200 each to produce.

James Stephens, a spokesman for the gardens, said: "It is just staff who get to taste the fruits as a thank you for their hard work."

He described the luxury fruit as having an "explosive flavour" and being "deliciously sweet".

"In an ideal world, we'd use about 90 tonnes of manure over the course of year which isn't cheap to source and transport," Stephens added.

"We've struggled to get good manure this year so we've had to use electric heaters. It can take up to two years to grow each pineapple so it's only fair."

What is the point of spending so much on a pineapple?? If you don't eat it in time, it will just rot and go bad. You can get a good one on sale for $1.99 US. Anyone who buys this pineapple is literally throwing their money away...

Ok, I like pineapples but I don't want to know how you did it, all I will be thinking while I'm eating it, are the horse manure and urine. After spending that money you will have to think " this better be some good sh#t"

Well no matter how good it tastes, I can already say that most people why be buying it (just look what we're saying here lol). But for the people who do get to taste it, I hope they feel it's worth it. :P

Lol was this for real?? I can imagine their excited expressions and basically just waiting for the next clump of poop (gold). :lol: that would have been one very famous horse!

Not sure if it is a true story or not, but my parents and relatives often told me and my brothers the story. There was also this really old show about it too.. I vaguely remember watching it at a young age. They bought home a horse that they claimed to poop out gold if you hit it's butt. There was this one scene that I still remember to this day. All of the towns people were waiting to see if the horse was going to poop out gold, however, one man hit his butt and a big load of poop splashed out on him and everyone... It was really gross but very funny...

If my pineapples tasted better than theirs for a a quarter nickel they'll be out of business.
