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.
