Mutated Pineapple Looks Like Something Out Of A Horror Movie

News

A crazy-looking pineapple is turning heads on social media for having multiple growing points.

It is believed to have a rare condition called fasciation or “cresting” which is a mutation that occurs in succulents.

This happens when the original plant sustains some damage to the normal, single growing point and causes it to make multiple growing points.

Any occurrence of fasciation has several possible causes, including hormonal, genetic, bacterial, fungal, viral and environmental causes.
