Here is the bloom on the latest of my pineapples to come into flower. Note the white area on the leaves immediately below the pineapple. This is very different from the bright red hue that usually comes. Also, the stem looks much thicker & sturdier than usual, and the flower itself seems more compact.

Could it be Ananas comosus 'Champaka' ?

The red-fruited pineapple (Ananas bracteatus http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/54111/) is one I would certainly like to come across and try to grow!
