Homegrown pineapple tastes incredible… but also looks incredible:
That’s fresh off one of my pineapple plants.
The funny thing: these plants were started with the tops of standard store-bought pineapples, yet the flavor of the fruit they produce is far superior to the fruit we originally bought. Homegrown pineapples are also a lot less acid.
Bonus: Bright, fully ripe, fresh fruit is a lot better for you than the dull, under-ripe, aging produce you find in the store.
I recently got a whole bunch of improved commercial pineapple plants for my nursery. When you plant tops, you get smaller fruit than when you plant a vegetatively propagated variety… but if you pick up one of these, you’ll get big fruit. Either way, plant some pineapples!
If I’m growing pineapple up here in North Florida with almost no work… what’s stopping you folks further south? Stick a few dozen pineapple plants around your yard and wait. They’ll fruit – I guarantee it.
Pineapples are a boon for lazy gardeners… and they’re simply amazing to eat fresh. Start growing pineapples and you’ll see what I mean. Be patient… and good things will come your way.
