FruitsPineapples are one of the example of mathematicalobjects that occur in nature. Their growth is dictatedby the Fibonacci sequence in multiple ways.Fibonacci numbers dictate the number of spirals thatappear on the skin of the fruit. There are 8 spirals inone direction, 13 spirals in the opposite direction,and 21 spirals vertically. Each of these numbersappear chronologically in the Fibonacci sequence.This pattern of growth determines the iconicdiamond pattern found on the pineapple.Strawberries are another example of a fruit withFibonacci sequence. In this fruit, you can see thespiral from the bottom of the strawberry going to thetop. As you count the seeds that goes along, you willnotice that the first, in between and the lastnumbers are all dictated by the Fibonacci sequence.
