Pineapple Plant

Kitchen Flavours and A Beautiful Mess guessed right! My new plant is a pineapple plant, and I got it from IKEA......I know, very unexpected! But since the weather is getting chilly, the pineapple is inside the house, and I'm assuming it will wither away very soon.

actual pineapples from the Dole Plantation, Hawaii

Do you think my pineapple wil grow bigger? The "directions" on the pot said that the pineapple is not edible...are there non-edible pineapples?

  1. I think Mr. Pineapple Man is adorable. I had to come visit just based on that name! I loved the family photo. There is a really strong family resemblance, you are lucky.

    We are headed to Harry Potter land next week. I do happen to be a huge fan and you have gotten me so excited. It looks fantastic. We are a little disappointed that our 45incher won't be able to ride the main Harry Potter ride though. I don't take the grandkids until they are tall enough to ride the rides but this one surprised us.

    I am sad you threw away the green tomatoes. I just put them in a box in the garage and they slowly ripen a few at a time and we have fresh tomatoes for 4-6 weeks after the frost. Try that.

  3. Hooray! I got it right (wink again!) Pineapple plant needs the full sun to grow healthy, so I think that it will wither away if you put it indoors. I've got no idea of any pineapples that cannot be eaten! Interesting! Got to dig more info from the web! Ikea in Malaysia have some cool plants too!

  4. I see you are dying to pick one of these, lol. I can't imagine a non-edible pineapple. What a tease that would be! Maybe they stay woody, like the center of a ripe pineapple? I would tryone anyway, lol

  10. Can't fathom a non-edible pineapple! That's like torture! (Ooops! Sorry Mr Pineapple Man - but I have to say, you are one of my most fav fruits!)
    They look like the small pineapples sometimes sold in UK supermarkets - they call them Queen Pineapples and give them a hefty price tag of £1 when the larger Del Monte Gold's can cost £1.50-£2.00 and are at least 4 times larger!
