The giant pineapple house in South Africa
With a height of 20 meters, the Big Pineapple House outside of Bathurst is the world’s tallest pineapple structure. With this pineapple home, we continue our list of the world’s most bizarre structures.
The surrounding region is largely farmland, which is known for producing pineapples. Farmers arrived in the region in the 18th century and struggled to produce crops until they discovered pineapples. As a result, the villagers decided to construct a large structure in the form of the fruit to celebrate it and the delicious riches it provided. In the 1980s, members of the Bathurst farming community created the Big Pineapple.
The structure is three floors tall. An observation deck is built within the pineapple, which is composed of metal and fiberglass. A pineapple museum and a variety of pineapple goods are available for purchase within the pineapple statue.
Despite Australia’s comparable fruit shape, the Big Pineapple is two feet higher and hence claims to be the world’s biggest pineapple structure.
