First Pineapple

1 (3)This morning I got to harvest the first pineapple from my yard. I had bought the plant over when I moved here a year ago. When it changed colors from green to yellow, I knew it was ripe. I have six other pineapple plants, in different stages of development. It takes approximately 2 years to grow a pineapple. This fruit can be easily grown in a container as well, because the roots are shallow.

  1. Beatriz, I’m positively green with envy! How brilliant to just grow one in your back yard. I wish we had the climate for it, but quelle surprise, it’s raining here in England. I love your blog and all the pictures 😉 it’s so leafy and bright, I’m definitely living vicariously through it…
