Some Klingonists used *{'anan naH} for pineapple, but in qep'a' 2019 we received {'IventoH}:

(qep’a’ 2019):  A Klingon fruit that grows on trees that’s kind of like a pineapple (though pineapples don’t grow on trees), largish with thorny projections on a reasonably hard shell or skin. Unlike a pineapple, though, the inside is more bitter than sweet. A pineapple may be referred to as a {tera' 'IventoH}.
