The Pineapple Plant

My first week living in Hawaii someone told me that I could take the beautiful white pineapple that I had sitting on my counter and grow my own pineapple from it. What you do is take the top of the fruit, cut it, clean it of any left over fruit, let it dry for a couple days, stick it in water and the roots will start to grow from it in just a few days. Here I am 6 years later and my pineapple plant has given me several pineapples. It took about 3 years for it actually grow a pineapple. I will never forget checking on the plant and seeing a little pineapple deep inside. That pineapple grew, we ate it and planted another pineapple, which has just started it's first pineapple. Every time we get a pineapple, we plant another. One thing I learned was that if you want the white pineapples to stay white pineapples they cannot be planted near the "other kind" of pineapples there are. At this time, we have about 20 pineapple plants scattered throughout our property. Be fruitfull and multiply. Hawaii makes that easy.

Sounds yummy and fun too!  I think they would freeze here in North Central Florida but I know some people that have them here!  Banana trees don't get to full ripeness before it gets too cold for them too.

I never realized that it would take so long to get a pineapple plant to produce fruit.  I have also never heard of the white pineapple, is it sweeter than the yellow variety?

Aloha Patrick,

It's a fun project for the kids. Pineapple, is a fruit that doesn't require too much space to produce and is easy to care for. Thanks for the post.
