How to Grow Pineapples
Video doesn't seem to work but search for "How to grow a pineapple" and "Hilda" on youtube. You'll find the exact method I use :) https://youtu.be/ZFQTyG-1Aa4
I live up in the cold north and found this method to be the only working one:

Definitely in pots for Georgia. In the far South along the Florida border, you cold manage if they are covered with plastic in the winter. They are tropical and will be killed by frost.
Don't waste a good apple! Use peels and cores. Most any fruit scraps will do the trick...banana peels, etc.
I wish I knew this earlier! Fun trick.
i did it lol easy make a hard one pls
Do you only get one pineapple per plant. Will that bush produce next year?
`Nope, lisarudedog, my bad but u are also wrong!!! Google it people and learn a few correct facts before taking sides!!
No, I live on the Gulf Coast and been a few different places in my lifetime so far, there has never been not one single pineapple I have EVER seen that has a seed(s). #lisarudedog <u are most definitely right on this one!!!!
Can it grow in GA in garden bed or I should plant it in the pot?
pineapples do have seed. in nature, they are pollinated by hummingbirds. there are no hummingbirds in hawaii. thus hawaiian pineapples are seedless. pineapples raised elsewhere often have seeds.

I have a dozen pineapples that I don't want the squirrels and/racoon to eat as they have in the past. Any help with what I might do so that I get to eat them and not the animlas? - PamK35
bought a pineapple to try and grow it. when I cut it up I found some brown seeds. are these viable to grow. first time I have ever seen them. thanks jean - JeanN16
that looks very much like a "kona sugarloaf." i have several that look just like that. the flesh is white to pale yellow. high sugar, low acid, soft edible core. a great variety! you can break off the plantlets and they will make a whole new plant each. if you have so many plants in one pot, the crowding will likely give you smaller sized fruit. - RobertI25
hi jeanN16,yes, pineapples can be grown from seed, but you will need patience (five or more years from seed to fruit) take the little brown seeds from your pineapple and rinse them in cool water. place then on half of a paper towel. fold the other half of the paper towel over them, making a "taco" with the seeds between the sides of the towel. put the towel and seeds in a quart (or larger) ziplock bag so that it lies flat. add a couple tablespoons of water - enough that the towel is thoroughly wet. seal the ziplock and place it in a sunny window. be sure it stays wet. in a month or so, the seeds (maybe half of them) will sprout. when the little plantlets are about a half or three quarters of an inch, gently plant them in some screened (no large chunks), well draining potting or garden soil. at this point, a styrofoam coffee cup with a hole in the bottom is about the right sized pot. keep the baby plants moist. as they get bigger, move them into larger pots - maybe once a year. pineapples like sun and warmth, they don't like wet feet (soggy soil) or frost. once established, they are tough plants. foliar feeding with a dilute application of liquid fertilizer once or twice a month will help. - RobertI25
that's called a "ratoon." it's a new pineapple plant. it will probably make a pineapple one year later than your larger plant. you can leave it where it is, or you can carefully break it off and give it its own pot. - RobertI25

My pineapple is growing its 3rd and 4th fruit right now.
Actually, the process is going very well.
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
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.
Pretty sure you can park there all day. A couple of years back, my wife and I went to Kona Cafe for breakfast, then walked around the Polynesian, took the path over to the Grand Floridian, then rode the monorail to the Contemporary. So, in short, yes, you can.
Thanks for the laugh ?
