UPDATE: Growing Pineapples From The Leftover Tops

pineapples grown from leftover topsWe were really looking forward to harvesting that golden treasure in the garden – the pineapple which had taken (I think) 3 years to produce its fruit. And I was even more delighted that it stayed perfect and ready for harvest until I could share this with Leighton (my little granddaughter) when she visited from Perth recently. The pineapple was duly admired, harvested and  chopped up with a mango for good measure (I do love living in Queensland at this time of year!) Absolutely yummo!

Nothing really is sweeter than home grown fruit! AND because I grew it myself – it still had its top on, so now I have another pineapple baby, which all going well, should be ready in Feb 2017!
