on'yomi

Etymology[edit]

From Chinese 鳳梨,[1][2], probably more specifically Cantonese, given that it was the Portuguese who first brought this fruit to East Asia, and the Portuguese were more active in southern China.

The pineapple was introduced to Japan relatively recently, with the earliest mentions around 1830.

The reading is the regular Japanese on'yomi (kan'on) for the Chinese spelling. Compare the modern Cantonese reading fung6 lei4.
