I am from Tucson Arizona. Many aloe vera plants have gotten this exact fungus over the last 15 years. The fungus can spread to an entire clump of Aloes. It distorts mainly the flowers on aloe & the flowers will look exactly like your pineapple does. It seems to be almost a type of cancer. Very sad. In 1990's another fungus- white & rust in appearance- hit all the prickly pear cactus in our neighborhood and one by one died off. I would dispose of your pineapple immediately. Did you add some soil to the pot from outside?

Kruger National Park is the biggest reserve in South Africa. If you need to know more about Kruger National Park or the animals, I can answer. There are a few other game reserves in South Africa I can assist with if you need questions about them answered.
