Nothing like a Home Grown Pineapple
This is the second pineapple or ratoon from the parent pineapple that I planted in a container three years ago. It has been growing in my front yard and has been a conversation piece among myself and neighbors. This lovely little beauty was as sweet as it looks and the entire family enjoyed eating it. I did save the top and set it to grow roots for hopefully another pineapple. I also see what looks to be another top growing from the original plant and there are puppies in the pot that I will need to transplant into their own containers.
I hope you give pineapple a try in your garden. Be patient and you too will one day be proudly eating a pineapple you've grown.
