First, get your hands on a pineapple…

Any pineapple will do, and you should be able to get one from your local grocery store or fruit stand.

Next, cut off the pineapple’s “crown.”…

Slice the top of the pineapple off, including about an inch of the fruit below the leaves. Pick off any leaves that are dying, and remove any of the remaining fruit from the crown.

Then, plant the crown in a pot filled with soil…

If you live in a warm, tropical climate, you can plant your pineapple right in the ground, but if you don’t, then a prepared pot indoors will do just fine. Place the crown in the pot, with the leaves sticking up, and cover its base with soil.

That’s it! The only thing left to do is wait for it to grow…

We did this in florida and they were great just a bit smaller than the ones you buy but you can go to the grocery store and they will give you the tops

I did this once – rooted a top, nurtured it 2-3 years – had to move so gave it to my mother – she nurtured it approx 2 yrs and then it fruited

Been doing this for a few yrs now.
It’s a long time to wait, (up to 2yrs) but they seem to taste better than the ones they were taken from.
Strange but true.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
    So many detractors online these days.
    Your wording threw me.

    Reply

    Yes. I have strong wording. I speak a few languages. I am serious. I would like to be able to grow those pineapples.

    I tried to plant 1 and it failed.

    I have started tops in the ground. Started 10, 6 took. One even gave me a pineapple this year. Not expecting that & figure the others will take another year or so. I live in south Florida so have the weather that makes it easier to grow. I will soon be harvesting the little pineapple I have & we shall see how it tastes. 🙂
