Fran Beauman’s passion began with a childhood visit to the pineapple-shaped garden retreat at Dunmore Park in Scotland, and since then it has taken her across the world. It led to her writing a fascinating and quirky book about the history of the pineapple, encompassing pineapples and sex, empire and art.
