OriginEdit

The Dunmore Pineapple standing in Dunmore Park, Scotland is an unusual folly (decorative building). Originally host to walled gardens for fostering growth of warmer climate flora, the owners decided their garden renovation required a hothouse. That looked like a giant pineapple. Because pineapples were a quite rare staple in the 1700s and possessing any artistic form of them indicated wealth or stature. Standing atop the interior heating system and structural columns beneath, the stone was carved to realistically match a pineapple’s every crease and edge. Surprisingly, the pineapple actually looks in sync with the ground floors because they were both crafted from the same stone, leading to a well-meshed together structure.

EffectsEdit

Placing in direct contact with stone causes the material to be extracted and formed into the shape of a pineapple. A flowering bud will first appear, which quickly sprouts into a growing pineapple. During growth, the shape will appear to be quivering and oscillating like it’s made of mud or silt. When the fruit reaches ripeness, it will set and harden, turning into a fully edible stone pineapple. Although tough and crunchier than the regular type, they are nonetheless nutritious and surprisingly sweet. Will cause nearby gardens and collections of plants to experience heat strokes until they are wilting or dried up.
