Love the pineapples. Ate one tonight that I grew. Still have a couple left out in the yard, just are not ready to pick yet. I have a 4 headed beast, that I thought maybe would have 4 fruits at once, but it only put out one so far. Still hoping the other 3 will start to fruit at the same time...

...here's one of mine...



...and here's one with a couple of funky looking Frankenstein protrusions...

Not sure if the variegated I have are edible or not.
The nursery where I got them left me the feeling that they aren't.
Although, I think bigdog may have the same kind... that's very much what they look like. His seem to have more yellow than white though. Is that just the photo lighting? (When taking pictures straight down, sometimes the color dosen't come out as if you take it from the side.)

None to trade, sorry

Here's something similar on ebay that might satisfy

I'll get back to you in two years on that.

I do still plan to shoot my pineapples and post some good shots.

I am a little upset at you guys. Now I have to grow Pineapples! I did grow one, many - oh I mean a few - years ago. It did great. I now have one started and it seems to be doing good. I wasn't aware there were so many different types! I need a greenhouse!!!

looking for the below color and it smells sooooooo sweet.

but when it reaches half way from bottom up in a golden or yellowish color it should be ready.

Those look awfully tasty...

I just found the name of the variegated pineapple I posted months back - Ananus Lucida 'Striata'. To whom it may concern.

Those Dole Gold fruit pretty well. I grew one and we just ate the fruit on Saturday. I'd never tried growing pineapples before, so I had it in a 1 gallon pot and still got the cutest little pineapple a little larger than a softball. Tasted great.
and it sure was fun to see it grow/develop all summer! We had it for the last month on the kitchen table so we would be able to keep an eye on it.
One question, the pups from the original plant usually fruit in about a year right, as opposed to the two or three years it takes from a top?
Thanks for your help!
Sandy
