Lady Curzon And A Pineapple

As well as being a tasty treat, the pineapple is also a thing of symbolic significance in architecture.

In this celebration of the spiky-headed fruit, Ian Peacock meets a young pineapple grower and a man who likes to roast pineapples on a spit.

He also travels to Falkirk, to see Scotland's great Pineapple Folly.
