I take off all the tops of the pineapples I buy, and plant them in the garden.  They are quite an attractive plant (but very spiny), and look just like bromeliads.  They can take quite a while to form a pineapple, but as they are so easy to look after, I don't mind.  I hardly ever feed them, and they are out in the scorching sun, with little water.

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

These are the tops I have taken off bought pineapples.  They seem to take a while to get going, but once they do, they power away.

This pineapple is growing in an old washing machine tub. It is the first pineapple that has fruited and is about 18 months old. Most exciting to taste to see if it is worth growing more. The pineapple itself is about 3 weeks old and is growing fast-aprox. half the size of a shop bought one at present. I don t really know when it will be ripe or ready to pick. I do know there will be many hands reaching out for a slice once it is ripe.

AmyinBrisbane1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2207 days 22hrs

Comments: - I've planted three pineapple tops into the garden to see how they go. They were taken from pineapples from a farm near Maryborough, QLD. The pineapples were big and sweet so hopefully this fruit will be the same in a couple of years time! They are currently planted among pawpaws & bananas and mulched with sugarcane. They are north facing so get sun for most of the day.

Pineapples can be propagated by using the pineapple tops. Before planting into the ground or pot, let the tops dry in the an open area for a week or two and then pull a few of the lower layer leaves.


My pineapple tops have been planted in the 20cm pots for nearly a year, they are still alive but  hasn't grown much at all. Maybe need a sunnier spot and more feeding.
