Red PineappleBotanical Name: Ananas comosus var. bracteatus

A highly ornamental pineapple with striking red fruits. The flesh is sweet and juicy, pink-yellow in colour. The fruit weigh about one kilo each. Plant has spines or sharp edges; use extreme caution when handling. Short lived small perennial. Evergreen sword-like grey green leaves with a red hue. Plants take 18 to 24 months from planting to fruit. Fruit should be picked when fully ripe and have developed full flavour and sweetness. Sweetness is enhanced by regular irrigation. Summer ripening. Ripeness can be assessed by tapping the fruit: ripe fruits have a dull, solid sound; unripe fruits have a hollow sound.

Pineapple - Red

These are much hardier than normal pineapples and happily fruit in the shade in northern New Zealand. And as a cash crop, the gorgeous flowers-much showier than standard pineapple flowers-can fetch more than the fruit! | Suveran Dewsnap - Byron Bay, NSW 31-Mar-2014

Pineapple - Red (Cutting) 7/10

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1351 days 13hrs

Comments: - Growing fast and beautifully in the front. Very sunny and generally quite dry position. Much less red than I expected, but that might be because of too much sun or too little watering. It is also very spiky, more so than normal pineapples.

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination
