Spiny terrestrial bromeliad with tasty edible fruits. This Bromelia is one of the most widespread of all, since it grows wild from Mexico to Brazil, in scattered populations found on poor soils at any elevarions between 50 and 1500 m. Its fruits are gathered and marketed in many countries as a local fruit named "piñuela" (little pineapple), because it is sweet, acid, aromatic and easy to transport.
