How to Grow a Pineapple Plant

How to Grow a Pineapple Plant

It's a great time to plant this vibrant leafy green this late summer for an early spring harvest. It's colorful and  packed with nutrients!

Pineapple Crowns

Pick a healthy pineapple fruit and cut off the pineapple top with the leaves using a sharp knife. Let the cut end dry overnight and place in water to root.

Pineapple Seeds

Pollination in pineapple plants is difficult, so you rarely see pineapple seeds in grocery stores.

But if you're lucky enough to get seeds, germinate them on a moist paper towel and place them on a closed plastic bag.

Pineapple Slips or Suckers

A mature plant can produce new plants or slips and suckers. Cut them off using a sharp knife once they are 4 to 6 inches long.

Transplant the new pineapple plants into well-drained soil to prevent root rot and place them under full sun.
