Golden Pineapple Patio Fruit Collection
Yes, you CAN grow your own pineapple! This easy to grow delicious variety of pineapple (a member of the bromeliad family)is fascinating for children and adults both to watch the baby pineapple appear on a stalk and slowly grow bigger. The bonus is that it can be propagated again and again. Simply cut the top off when harvesting the fruit and place it in moist potting soil. You’ll have pineapple again!
Your pineapple needs bright light or full sun for most of the day. It can handle a bit of shade as long as there’s plenty of light.
Keep the plant away from freezing temperatures. During harsh winters, your might place it in a warm sunny nook created by a large south-facing window.
Grow your pineapple in an 8-10” pot with quality potting soil and keep moist but not soggy.
