    I'd love to have one of those, but they aren't cold hardy up here, and I'm moving away from things that hurt me.

    That is so cool I have read about them but have never seen one in person. Would love to have one where did you get It?

    I have these, very tricky trying to weed around them. But I like them, animals don't munch on them like they do with the plain green pineapples.

    I have them too. They are monsters. )) Finally flowered this year.

    An interesting post john. I would love to be able to grow pineapples of any kind ! They make great garnishs for my Pina Collada's !

    I once tried to grow these delicious fruits, when I was living in Islamorada, in the Upper Florida Keys. I was optimistic after planting 6 tops of just eaten big plants. I monitored them daily,..finally saw some growth, then, - to my dismay, went out one morning and saw that the eatable parts of all the growing plants were 50 % gnawed away !!

    I asked an older neighbor who had been living there for many years,.." Hey what's going on ? "

    He said " If it's an incomplete gnawing of my fruit, it was done by a Fruit Rat ! If it was completely eaten, then it was a racoon ! "

    So tell me, how is a homeowner able to grow this delicious fruit with critters like them hanging around ?

    my dad grew regular pineapples, i don't recall any critter damage. He grew them along the drip line of the house.
