So excited to see that 6 of our 9 pineapple plants are either blooming or about to bloom and produce fruit! None of these plants are more than 15 months old, and I was told they won't produce for 3 or 4 years because I started these from pineapple tops rather than suckers. It's amazing how the right care can make a difference. Very Happy

This is the pineapple shelves that I built this past summer.  They take up so much space so I wanted them up and out of the  way. They also don't take much water or attention, although I did fertilize them about 3 weeks ago with a citrus fertilizer that's also good for tropical fruit trees, and of course... PINEAPPLES!   Smile

Thanks Marie!  It all caught me by surprise this afternoon.  And what a nice surprise!  I really didn't expect them to produce so soon, nor this time of year.

Your welcome mschaef!  They are basically bromeliads, and the only one that I know that produces fruit.

Will do.  A local Facebook friends says she has to harvest them early before the squirrels get them.  She lets them ripen in a window.  But here, my garden cats HOPE the squirrels just try!  Hehehehe!

How are pineapple outer covering for composting ? I've been adding quite a lot recently to my compost piles.
Try to chop them up when not frozen....Pile is cold not, however soon I expect to reset it.

Yes, I believe they are.  I compost all my fruit and veggie scraps.

Those are beautiful pineapple plants and baby pineapples and blossoms!  What pretty colors!  I never knew they were in the bromeliad family but after you mentioned that, I went ahhh yeah, that makes sense!  You are doing a great job!  I would love to be able to grow them here, but winter . . .  At least we can enjoy them vicariously through your work.
