Hi Jeremy, nice article. : ) You did a great job.

I grow pineapples here in 9a, and have very good luck with them. I just let the top of the pineapple dry out a couple of days, and stick it in the ground. Most of the time, I don't even take care of them, and the next thing I know, there's a pineapple. So easy, almost too easy. Occasionally, a frost will knock them back alittle, but they usually recover.

Here is one I just got out of the yard yesterday. 7/14/08

Thanks, BlueGlancer, for sharing your photo! I think your pineapple gets the "Blue Ribbon" for the finest I've seen grown in a home garden.

I recently had a pineapple top that I cut off and put in the ground and thought I had lost it because most all the leaves dried up. It is, however, now beginning to form new green leaves. The pineapple plants are amazingly resilient. As you said, they really take care of themselves when planted in the right location.

You are welcome, Jeremy. : ) It was a pretty one. I can hardly wait till it finally gets ripe. Probably, will be ready to eat in 3 or 4 days. Maybe, I'll make an upside down cake out of it. Yum-Yum : )
