Default Abacaxi Pineapple Plant

Here is a photo of one of the newest pineapple plants I will be growing wanted to share with the group its called Abacaxi.

Abacaxi' (also called 'White Abacaxi of Pernambuco', 'Pernambuco', 'Eleuthera', and 'English') is well known in Brazil, the Bahamas and Florida. The plant is spiny and disease-resistant. Leaves are bluish-green with red-purple tinge in the bud. The numerous suckers need thinning out. The fruit weighs 2.2 to ll lbs (1-5 kg), is tall and straight-sided; sunburns even when erect. It is very fragrant. The flesh is white or very pale yellowish, of rich, sweet flavor, succulent and juicy with only a narrow vestige of a core. This is rated by many as the most delicious pineapple. It is too tender for commercial handling, and the yield is low. The fruit can be harvested without a knife; breaks off easily for marketing fresh.

Nice. Congratulations.
Have you tried the Sugarloaf variety yet? It is also a white fruit, nice and sweet with an edible core. I have 10 plants fruiting right now.

Where do you find a Sugarloaf with smooth leaves? I should separate pups and slips way more often, but my skin is reacting allergic to the spiny leaves of my plants.

MR Evil,
Because of you I now have been purchasing (Krogers,Publix) store bought pineapples and planting them in pots.
Like I need another plant.

Surprisingly, they are fun, delightful and easy to grow.

I bought the kaui sugarloaf pineapple from hawaii about 5 years ago -paid 25 bucks a fruit online. I have been growing the tops ever since. The leaves are smooth but have a few small spikes at the end. I've eaten 3 pineapple fruits from my plants - the fruit never compared to the original in size or taste. I'm going to try one more time with more acidic soil and more fertilizer.

I have one or two extra plants that I'm planning to leave outside this fall. Scaling back for now. PM me if you want want one at the cost of shipping....

Pineapple plants do like some what acidic soil.... try using fertilizer for acid loving plants 30-10-10 by miracle gro you will see a big difference in the plants growth and the fruits size.... you only need to feed the plant once a month
