Sugarloaf Pineapple


#1

In bloom!


#2

That’s so weird looking!


#3

That’s how they grow.


#4

I know but it’s still funny.


#5

cool…my understanding is they can sometimes take a while before the first bloom. how old is that plant??


#6

It was separated from a mother plant a year ago.


#7

Showing people how pineapples and cashews grow is one of life’s great joys.


#8

Today I planted it in the mulch of a banana bed. :slight_smile:


#9

Harvest :slight_smile:


#10

so how’d it taste? or does it still need to ripen a bit?


#11

Delicious!


#12

That’s awesome, Richard. It looks like cubes of pure sugar.


#13

It is less acidic than yellow pineapples and the core has the same texture as the fruit … entirely edible!


#14

Will you plant the top again?


#15
