Take a look at this...my pineapple has a little baby growing! I’m pretty excited! To understand my excitement, I should tell you where this pineapple got it’s start. It was part of a fruit basket from a good friend. She gave it to us as a housewarming gift when we first moved to Kauai. After we enjoyed the fruit, we planted the top. It lived on our lanai at the condo for 6 months until we bought our home. Shortly there after my husband planted in in our backyard. It’s been happily growing in our yard now for a year. I was delighted to walk out one morning to see it blooming!
Once a pineapple blooms, I was told it takes 5 to 6 months to mature into a full size fruit. So, between July and August we should have our own pineapple. I’ll keep you posted to it’s progress.
