Everytime we buy a pineapple at the supermarket, it is selected not for its size or estimated taste, but for home many leaves it has on top, for its replantability. A truely renewable fruit ;)

It cut off the top of a pineapple which I bought from the local supermarket and planted in a pot 2 years ago.  It has great foliage but no fruit yet.
