This is my design which extends Ilan Garibi’s Pineapple Tessellation. In this version, the pineapple is larger: the central pleated part is two grid diagonals long instead of one and there are five instead of three radial pleats. Each molecule is folded from an 11×11 grid, so the whole 4-molecule model with 1-grid-unit margins uses a 24×24 grid.
This model was published in Ilan’s book under the name Extreme Double Pineapple Tessellation, which better matches the other variants presented there while Super-Pineapple Tessellation is the name I originally used.
