Pineapple Progress

Pineapple (Ananas comosus)

Pineapple (Ananas comosus)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Here is an update on the pineapple from my garden that I displayed here about two months ago.     The pineapple has nearly doubled in size since then, and is now developing quite a lovely crown, too.   (Here's what it looked like in November.)

Pineapples grow slowly.  This one probably will not be fully ripe and large enough to pick and eat until late Spring or early Summer.

I remember but I went back to look to compare. It has grown a lot. I'd still like to try growing one of these.

I'm glad you are keeping us updated, Bobbie. It's growing beautifully! The leaves are a gorgeous red, too.

When we cut this thing up and eat it, I'll make sure we get a photo. It tastes as good as it looks......rjs

@ 2Sweet - It's in a major growth stage right now. It seems to grow larger every day.

@ Thanks, Kathy. I like those red leaves, too.

@ Jingui - Thank you so much. (I left a comment on your blog.)

@ Becky - Yes, on the plant they look a lot more colorful than when you see one in a grocery store.

@ Tink - Yep, a cutie. :-)

@ Jerry - That's a good idea. We'll do that!
