Here is a plain ol' grocery store pineapple that I started from a pineapple top in a pot. It took a little over a year to fruit if I remember right. I fetilized with fish fertilizer and once in a while I gave it bloom booster Miracle Grow when I was fertilizing all my other tropicals.

My white sugarloaf pineapples put out simultaneous inflorescences. I can't wait to taste this variety pineapple. You can't get them here in NC.

The one on the left looks like a spider plant I had years ago. Could they be related?

I've got 3 pineapple plants currently fruiting and two more that I am trying to convince to fruit. I hope the apples do the trick. One plant is over 3 years old, and it is high time for it to fruit.

I have pineapples that have never fruited what are you doing with the apples? They seem to be placed in odd places.

Ripe apples emit ethylene gas which sometimes triggers fruiting. It would be better to put a clear plastic trash bag over the entire plant for about a week so as to capture the gas and get a better ethylene treatment. However, my pineapples tend to flower naturally after two years of Carolina summer sun and then the onset of winter. I leave the plants outside until the temperatures dip into the lower 40's at night. Then I bring them indoors. The stress of winter and the trip indoors usually makes them fruit.

One of the plants surrounded with apples is 3 years old. It should have fruited last year. The stem is huge, so I don't know what it is waiting on. The second plant in the pot is a ratoon that is one year old. The mother plant fruited last winter.

Here is some more information about pineapples. http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/__data/as...-Pineapple.pdf

I treat with apples about January. It usually takes about a month after treatment to see evidence of inflorescence. Then my pineapple fruits take about 6 months to mature, so if I can get the inflorescence process going, the pineapple should be ripening up about August when I have lots of sun to sweeten up the fruit. To increase chances of fruiting, enclose the ripe apples and the pineapple in a clear, plastic bag for about a week. Treat again a few weeks later. You can really try the apples any time of the year, but be cognizant of the conditions under which your fruit will ripen: poor conditions=poor fruit.

Also, it sounds as if your plants are getting half the growing degree days as mine due to your climate. The pineapple plant will be reluctant to fruit if it has not accumulated enough starches (i.e. energy) from photosynthesis in the stem of the plant. If mine are fruiting in 2 years, then I would estimate it might take yours 4 years.

I will give it a try. I have nothing to lose but fruit to gain. Thank you.

This year's crop of pineapples is looking good. I am still hoping for two more plants to flower.

Well the 3-year-old plant is showing beginning signs of fruiting. The center of the plant is spreading, preparing for the inflorescence to pass through. I'll post a pic when I can. There is not much to see just yet, only a dark hole. It has been nearly a month since I started the apple treatment.

another way to trigger blooming in pineapples (if they are in containers) is to lay the plant on its side for a week. this shocks the plant and causes it to try to reproduce. obviously this would not work with pineapples planted in the ground.
