If you buy a whole pineapple at the grocery store…

enjoy the fruit…then lop the green top off. Leave about 1 inch of fruit

Plant it in your yard….or in a pot

and let it grow.

I'm having my 25th anniversary this year and am actually pretty excited that we made it! We have been know to forget and be pretty blase about anniversaries in general but not this one. He has been warned. I digress however,
does this work if the pineapple top has dried out already? And can you just keep getting pineapples to eat? It's probably hot enough long enough there. Although it is plenty HAWT right now. I came over looking for some water and iced drinks. Whooo it's been a bakin couple of weeks.

I never knew you could do that - thanks for sharing!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Yeah...even when they are kinda brown (not dried and shrivelled totally brown) you can do this....look Sarah grows hers on a boat...and they are happy! Nothing to lose in trying, anyways. Happy fourth to you all...and to all a baby pina colada. oooofff.

Drawing Pineapples said...

I just totally enjoyed watching my pineapple mature. One day it 'listed' over and I plunked it. It was green in color. Kept it on my surfboard bar to adore it until it got a yellow hue to it. I then drew it...it was way more prickly to hold than when it was newly picked... Sliced off 1" as directed...ate the beauty..yum. Put it in vanilla yogurt. wow. thanks for your advice. i cannot wait to see it grow again! D
