Pineapple Plants

The first time I ever saw a pineapple plant was on my first trip to Hawaii.  It really is an interesting and unusual plant.  Here is a photo we took on our most recent trip to Hawaii.

  1. Thanks, Laura! The first time I saw a pineapple plant, I had to do a double take. Pineapple plants look so funny to me. They kind of look like something you’d see in a science fiction movie. I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo, but those pineapples were probably only half grown.

  2. Mahalo for the mention Sheila! When I saw your photo it reminded me of how nice my pineapple patch was coming along till my puppy demolished it! We have started over but it will take at least 2 years before we get any fruit again.

  3. HVG – Sorry to hear that your puppy destroyed another pineapple patch. I’m sure the puppy was only protecting you. πŸ˜‰

    Would it help to try growing them in containers?
