The red pine cone is called a bract. This is a botanist term for a specialized leaf. OK, I took a measuring tape out and measured the red pine cone. It is 7 inches tall!

There are some interesting facts about the re pine cone. You can squeeze the cone for fragrance. A soapy clear liquid, juice, is produced that can be used as a shampoo or conditioner for your hair. Just squeeze the juice from the cone. Wet your hair and pour the juice on your hair. Your hair will be soft and full of luster.
