Growing A Pineapple

Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. I've known you can restart the tops after cutting them, but never gave it much thought until recently. I watched a video on youtube which showed how to start one in water, and around the same time I read about a guy fruiting one in Minnesota. I thought I'd give it a try. Sure, it'll likely take a year, but what the heck.

  1. Twist and pull the top off of a fresh pineapple.
  2. Pull the brown leaves off the bottom, row by row until the little brown roots are showing.

  3. Trim the brown leaves with a scissor.
  4. Place in water and let sit in sunny location for a few days changing the water each day until little white roots form. Some more leaves will likely turn brown, just trim them back.

  6. Wait. It will take months before you get a pineapple to eat.
