I'm not sure Kelsey. You can cut the top off the pineapple and start a new plant. It will fruit but take a long time.

comment
heatherdirtyhands

When u cut the top remove a bunch of the bottom leaves so I have a nice stalk to place in the water. Honestly they don't take long to root just make sure u change the water often k. Once u see some decent roots. Place it in dirt. I have had mine almost 3 years i guess. No pineapple yet lol

@cowdenkyle do u leave the pineapple on little bit longer to get all yellow. Or cut it off.

comment
cowdenkyle

I usually wait for it to be about 90% yellow. Then I pick it and let it sit inside for a few days. Yours looks very little but about ready👍
