What is This Plant?

Does anyone recognize this "fruit"? I saw it at the local zoo but the only sign nearby claimed it was an American Pineapple. The tree looked like it was from the palm family. I am pretty good at identifying flora but this one has me stumped.

Pandanus. There are different kinds of pandanus plants. In the Pacific Islands the fruit of some species are edible. Fruit is ready when it's bright orange. The leaves are used for handicrafts, such as weaving mats,baskets, hand fans etc.

It is hard to tell from the photo, it does look like a young pineapple. Ellen

I don't know the name of it, but it is a local plant that grows in Australia along the eastern Coastline.
