Step 2: Cut and Eat...

Take your pineapple home with you. Rinse the fruit off, then place it on it's side on a cutting board. Take a knife and cut off the leafy top part of the pineapple, along with an inch or two of the pineapple's meat. Set this aside while you proceed to eat the rest of the pineapple
<p>I live in southeast AZ and have a lot of growing time. So, I got a little pocket book some years ago that showed how you can grow &quot;free&quot; plants. The pineapple directions said, when the pineapple plant is at least 2 ft tall, and if you put an apple with it, and enclose it in plastic, the gas created by the apple can cause the growth of the fruit. I goofed and hacked my plant with my weedeater one day and....... bye-bye plant. :( My question is: if I manage to get the plant to produce a fruit, is that the only one it will produce, or will the same plant grow more than one pineapple? </p>
<p>My pineapple is growing its 3rd and 4th fruit right now.</p>
<p>some people are saying it will produce a second time but not a third. I grew one and it fruited this year. Will keep the plant in the ground and see if it does again. In the meanwhile, I will plant the fruit i just got and start another. </p><p>Wouldn't hurt in case it doesn't fruit again </p>
I just started mine, progress is going very good. Excited to see what happens and how much food I get. Thinking of transplanting this in the ground I live in Nevada I'm hoping the climate is good for it.
<p>Actually, the process is going very well.</p>
<p>I read in an article that when you get the first pineaple need to cut any new plant that grow from the first one but i am from south america and a plant can produce many pineaple do not cut the new plants please is WRONG INFORMATION, YOU WILL GET ALOT OF PIANEAPLE FROM THE SAME EVERY NEWBABY FROM ORIGINAL WILL GIVE TO YOU A NEW PINEAPLE THANKS FOR YOU INFORMATION VERY GOOD</p>
I started one this way last year and it did very well but accidentally got left out in the cold. I bought some more to start indoors and low and behold my pineapple has seeds!!!!!! So I am starting seeds this time!!!!! I am so excited. Starting from seed allows me to plant more in smaller pots for now seeing as it's winter here in Michigan.
<p>i have two beautiful plants that I have had for two years, outside in the summer and inside in the winter Texas gets cold but I have not seen any signs of a blossom is there something else that I need to do? </p>
<p>I know this sounds like a joke but they need an apple -- no, seriously!! The apple slice will give off ethylene gas which encourages the plant to flower and set fruit. Simply place the plant in a large plastic bag, put a slice of apple on the crown, tie up the bag and put it in a warm shady spot. After 4 days, remove the plant from the bag, discard the apple slice and put the plant back in it's sunny place. After a few months you'll get beautiful little cluster of flowers followed by a small fruit -- about 6 months later, you should be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor!! Good luck!!</p>
<p>WOW I found this quite by accident while looking up some information for a friend! I, too, was wondering why my beautiful 2-1/2 y/o pineapple had never shown any sign of desiring to bloom and fruit. I've got to get apples for Thanksgiving anyway, so I'll reserve a slice for my baby! Thank you so much!</p>
<p>It is either a bromeliad or a pineapple plant...they sort of look alike, but one produces a pineapple, the other a flower... Hope it is a pineapple plant...</p>
<p>Pineapple themselves are bromeliad plants but they are a certain bromeliad that bears fruit</p>
<p>Y'all should go the next level with it, you can online order white organic pineapple from Kauai, bada boom bada bing, grow that one. Mean da white one.</p>
Can someone tell me what I have going here?
<p>It looks more like an agave plant or a relative of the aloe. Either that or it is a plant, I can't remember its name but I have so many of them in my garden, it starts with B. Sorry brain not working well today</p>
<p>I think it's a pineapple (guessing from the article's title 'How to Grow Pineapples'). Then again I failed out of college.</p>
On a pineapple tour of the Dole Plantation here in Hawaii, they said once a pineapple is harvested it doesn't get any more ripe. Also, the color of the pineapple doesn't determine ripeness either.
Any1 have any luck with these in the UK?
<p>Hi Victron</p><p>I started mine 2 years ago and it has given a fruit. I live in Surrey. </p>
<p>We have had one growing since December 2014. We are in Australia Central NSW Coast and it is doing well. We have been covering it during winter nights. Its doing well.</p>
I started this one Feb 2015
<p>I have a plant that I have been growing for several years. It now has 4 fruits on it. Actually there are several plants in the pot. One of the fruits has several small shoots at the bottom that look like small pineapples. Anyone know what this is?</p>
<p>The small shoots are probably what's called &quot;pups&quot;. Many plants from the pineapple family of Bromeliads have those, and they are volunteer clones. You should be able to separate those, plant them, and get whole new pineapple plants! Congrats and good luck!</p>
<p>Is a lot of direct sun too much for pineapples? I have 2 in pots and was told they like a lot of sun. But one of them the leaves have white streaks like plants get from sunburn. I am just trying to figure if it is too much sun or something wrong with my plant. Both of my plants are in the same area that gets sun all day one looks great. Thanks for any ideas.</p>
I so happy that my pineapple is starting to come in. Can't wait to see how delicious it will be. My first homegrown pineapple
<p>In early 2014 I purchased a small pineapple from a local grocery store. I cut off the green top and put it in a planter with fresh potting soil. It began growing new leaves right away. During the cold weather I kept the planter in a sunny window of my house. When the weather warmed up I placed it outside on my deck. I did not bring the planter back in until early fall. The plant produced a small bud last month. And in the space of 6 weeks it has grown into a miniature pineapple.</p>
<p>My Aunt and Uncle live in Canada and they grew Pinapples so it can be done anywhere :)</p>
