We grew pineapples, but so far no fruits. I am not very particular about going all out to get decent harvest. The four plants we have serve well as another landscape element. They are spiky with exotic patterns and very ornamental. They provide slight deviation from otherwise complete green and green all over the garden.
Farmers will take side shoots as seedlings. I took the crown at the top of pineapples as seedlings. Crowns are not the best option for serious pineapple growers. But it's enough to fulfill the intended purpose.... being ornamental. So crowns are not pineapple express...., they will just grow and there is no telling when the fruits will appear.
I read somewhere about pineapple express, which in fact is about meteorological phenomenon occurring around Hawaiian Islands extending to any location along the Pacific coast of North America . Its actually atmospheric river, water vapour transported over a narrow corridor in the air.
I am waiting for the four pineapple plants
to speed up on the express lane for fruits extravaganza!
