That baby pineapple I showed you awhile back is all grown up! Here’s what it looked like just before I picked it....
It was turning yellow and had a lovely pineapple scent. That’s how you know it’s ready to harvest. Behind it you can see my neighbor’s mango tree...another yummy tropical fruit.
What it lacked in size was made up with delicious flavor! It was sweet and juicy.
When I cut the pineapple, I saved the top. I removed the flesh and planted it in a pot. I have a few pineapples started. I just need to decide where to plant them in the yard. For now they’re all just hanging out together on our lanai, enjoying the sunshine.
Next time you buy a pineapple from the store, save the top and plant your own little pineapple. They’re fun and easy to grow. You can even keep them as houseplants, if you place them near a sunny window they’ll be happy.
Thanks for reading my diary!
Wishing you aloha!
