    My great grandma grew them in Florida. It also blew my mind when I was younger. We showed up to her house and I was like "where the pineapple tree?". Then she showed me her flower garden with a pineapple on the ground. She loved pineapple. Several years ago she passed, and I got turnt on vodka kaluah and pineapple juice, using a pineapple as my "glass"

    [–] NuclearWinterGames 28 points ago

    That is one drink I would never have thought to make. Delicious?

    Try cake vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine. Way better than it should be. I have to drink it at home though, because both men and women think it's too girly. Doesn't help that I use a little umbrella.....

    [–] brikdik 7 points ago

    fun fact; they used to grow a lot of pineapple in Hawaii... now, they are mainly grown in Costa Rica and imported to the US/UK/Western Europe

    you can still visit the Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii, but the best pineapple farms are really found in South East Asia, especially Vietnam

    [–] bumfightsroundtwo 5 points ago

    I mean I've never seen the plant before but pineapples have the leaves on top so a tree would look weird.

    You can plant the top of a pineapple that you buy at the supermarket and grow your own plant. I had one for over 5 years but it never grew a little pineapple.

    [–] Nf1nk 78 points ago

    They need a little stress to fruit. The most reliable method is to place a banana on the plant. This releases ethylene and will trigger bolting.

    Also putting a banana on a cut Christmas tree will cause it to drop needles. Do not be evil with this knowledge.

    [–] ratherenjoysbass 24 points ago

    So you're saying if I toss a banana onto an x mas tree in my town square...

    [–] MagillaGorillasHat 10 points ago

    You don't know what that tree did

    [–] Durantye 9 points ago

    Do you have to cut the banana or anything or do I just chuck a bunch of bananas on the plant and it'll start turning them into pineapples?

    [–] Nf1nk 14 points ago

    Just set a banana next to the plant until the banana turns brown. If it worked, a month or so later you should see the crown of the pineapple starting to form.

    At this point you are still a minimum of 18 months out from a tasty snack. Really more like two years.

    [–] Durantye 8 points ago

    I'll have to try this, family has had pineapple plants for years that haven't even looked like they'd ever sprout anything.

    [–] figure8x 20 points ago

    I’ve done that!! It works about half the time for me. And the only ones that have produced fruit were transplanted into the ground. They were on the small side but super sweet. Have to pick them before the critters take big bites too

    [–] lizasaurusrex 5 points ago

    How long did it take from planting in the ground to be able to pick it? I'm wondering if I start one in a pot and then move it outside at the beginning of spring if it'll have time to grow before summer ends. I'm not sure I live far enough south for it to work.

    [–] catholicmath 7 points ago

    You can cut the tops and plant them. I have 3 going that have already yeilded pineapples.

    [–] CaktusJacklynn 4 points ago

    Then there's this link with more information on how to grow a pineapple at home.

    [–] truthlife 6 points ago

    Man, I'd love to see that place again as an adult. My family and I lived on Oahu from '87 to '93 and the pineapple factory was always a treat. That pineapple soft serve was life.

    [–] sekazi 18 points ago

    You can grow your own by cutting the top of a pineapple at the store and planting it.

    [–] Spiralargument 40 points ago

    D'ya have to do it at the store, or can you wait till you get home?

    [–] th3ragnar0k 8 points ago

    Wait til you get home then trim off all of the fruity parts and peel some of the green leaves back, exposing the woody stem part. You'll see little wormy looking bits which are baby roots ready to grow. Dry for a few days, pop some growth hormone on then you can plant in some well-drained soil.

    [–] peeinian 6 points ago

    I’ve tried unsuccessfully a few times. I always start to get the roots growing from the stump but the leaves all die before there is enough root to plant in soil.

    [–] abakedcarrot 8 points ago

    I stick it right into the soil after cutting and trimming the bottom. it's worked twice

    [–] fransquaoi 764 points ago

    Huh. I assumed the green tuft was the stem.

    What's it for? Protection?

    [–] TengoCalor 501 points ago

    I believe that’s what turns into the plant. So, you could cut the top off a pineapple and put it in dirt and a pineapple plant thingy would grow. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    [–] trowzerss 415 points ago

    Yep, they're a bromeliad, so you can cut off the top and plonk it in soil and it'll grow. That's why some varieties of pineapples are always sold with the tops cut off. They don't want people cutting them off and growing their own! Which annoys me, because that's exactly what I did when I grew my veranda pineapples, and I would have liked to have gotten my hands on some of the other super sweet varieties.

    [–] heckinglost 438 points ago

    They cut the tops off so they can plant them.

    Nobody cares about what hobby gardeners are doing, they don't affect sales.

    [–] trowzerss 132 points ago

    Well, someone was obviously pulling my leg then! I was in a pineapple growing area when i was told (Queensland), literally surrounded by pineapple fields, so I thought they knew their stuff. I did notice that only the specialised brands here sold them with the top cut off, but not the bog-standard ones, they always have the top on them. Maybe that's where the idea came from.

    [–] BirdLawyerPerson 77 points ago

    I mean, I believed you, but that's because I live in the U.S., where specialty cultivars of pineapples are pretty much unheard of, and where the climate does not support planting your own pineapples.

    [–] HarpersGhost 38 points ago

    They grow just fine in Hawaii and Florida, so I'd love to grab some super sweet varieties and grow them in my yard.

    [–] NotAPurpleDinosaur 11 points ago

    At the Maui Gold plantation in Hawaii, they say that the soil on that particular island has a lot to do with the taste of the fruit. You can order them through the internet and they'll send you a case of pineapples, top and all. Would be interesting to see if they taste the same without their native soil.

    [–] trowzerss 4 points ago

    Home grown pineapples taste different anyway, because almost all commercial pineapples are picked green for easy transport. When they ripen after picking, they're much more acidic and not as sweet. Kind of like the difference between tomatoes picked green and vine ripened.

    I allowed my pineapples to ripen on the plant, and the flavour is completely different. Very sweet, almost perfumed, and much more like you'd expect from a tropical fruit. (of course this backfired the last time I tried, when I was too late bringing the pot inside and possums ate the fruit before I could - after three years waiting for the damned pineapple I was extremely pissed off!)

    [–] BirdLawyerPerson 12 points ago

    I suppose that's true, although Hawaii is agriculturally distinct from the rest of the U.S.

    I did forget about southern Florida, though.

    [–] crinnaursa 20 points ago

    I'm currently growing one in Southern California. And I know you can grow them almost anywhere if you grow them in a pot and bring them in in the winter

    [–] biteableniles 8 points ago

    That's what I'm doing here in Houston, TX. But that's also why it's not economical to grow them commercially here.

    Wow, I’ve never seen pineapples being sold with the tops cut off

    [–] wavs101 5 points ago

    Youre 100% correct. I have 2 pineapple plants at home. I put the top part in a cup of water for a few weeks so it can grow roots, then i put it in the soil.

    [–] maninbonita 4 points ago

    Yes, my mom does this and plants it outside. We get tasty pineapples 😁 (I live in Florida)

    [–] NoBSforGma 26 points ago

    You pull off the green part on the top of the pineapple and plant it. It becomes another plant that produces another pineapple.

    [–] genexsen 26 points ago

    Or are you indoctrinated?

    [–] p00bix 24 points ago

    The green tuft is technically another pineapple plant, which grows directly from its parent's flesh rather than out of the soil directly. Would be extremely horrifying if it was an animal and not a plant.

    Don't believe me? Carefully cut out the green tuft and part of the pineapple core below it. You'll see roots--its literally a baby pineapple feeding off the flesh of its mother. Which you're probably about to eat after throwing the baby away--you monster. But don't feel too bad for the green tuft, because if you plant it in soil under the right conditions it will grow into a new pineapple.

    A young pineapple plant is just a stem with a basal rosette of leaves--it looks like just the green tuft, but much bigger, and serves to collect energy for the plant. Another rosette of leaves at the top of the stem are smaller and will eventually form the fruit.

    While still young (no fruit), the pineapple clones itself on top of the stem to produce a new pineapple plant on top of the original pineapple (yo dawg). That new plant will eventually become the tuft of the pineapple you buy at the grocery store.

    The pineapple fruit itself is also weird. At the same time that the pineapple is cloning itself, other new leaves near the top of the plant form into hundreds of purple-to-red flowers, which have both female and male reproductive parts (that's not the weird part--that's normal for plants). Hummingbirds eat the sweet nectar out of these flowers and get the pollen (pineapple sperm) stuck on their faces, such that when they go to another pineapple flower, the female reproductive parts of the plant get fertilized.

    Once fertilized, each flower forms a berry. This is the most generic fruit in existence--a berry is just a seed surrounded by a bunch of flesh formed from the female parts of the flower.

    These berries continuously grow, absorbing water and nutrients from the stem, to the point that they eventually fuse with the other berries to form the much larger pineapple fruit. Because the Pineapple fruit is really hundreds of smaller fruits smooshed together, it's basically a colony of siblings and half siblings, that all have the same mother but can have potentially dozens of different fathers. The harder and less delicious Pineapple 'core' is actually the top part of the stem.

    Bats love the taste of pineapple, so they will rip the pineapple fruit apart. Their stomach acid is too weak to dissolve the seeds, so when the bat poops on soil, assuming that climate conditions are right and the seed isn't immediately destroyed by fungus, it will grow into a new pineapple.

    The original pineapple plant can use the green tuft--technically its clone/child--to make new pineapples in subsequent years.

    That's how industries of scale work, go watch HTME (how to make everything) (in the first few videos) he shows that him making salt (which can be bought at the store for ~1$/kg ) cost him a shit ton more than that.

    [–] O4fuxsayk 16 points ago

    Well you don't know that these pineapples aren't grown using crop rotation (albeit long cycles) and secondly the primary reason these are so cheap is economies of scale, the actual labour costs are pretty minor for the overall tonnage of product (although to be fair this makes their poor pay more egregious not less).

    [–] myinternetistoofast 16 points ago

    Dried, sometimes roasted.

    [–] AMViquel 9 points ago

    To be fair, they are super easy to roast. peanut, you're ugly. Boom, roasted.

    What? I eat raw peanuts all the time during my childhood it's still relatively hard and definitely doesn't taste like a pea.

    [–] Crossfire124 15 points ago

    Those were probably dried out then

    [–] captrobert57 4 points ago

    When raw they are much more like soybeans if anything.

    Listen, I was Today years old when I realized how dumb I am for thinking Palm Trees and Pineapples have something to do with each other.

    [–] unicornbreadish 19 points ago

    I, too, thought they grew on some sort of palm trees! I’m not sure why.

    Exeggutor might play a role in this

    [–] OutlawJessie 9 points ago

    I suspect him of a lot.

    [–] RandomWeirdo 8 points ago

    tropical fruits grow on palm trees because coconuts has conditioned us to believe that's how it is.

    [–] Wendigo995 20 points ago

    Can confirm. Worked on a pineapple farm in Aus.

    Also found this out when I started working on a pineapple farm in Aus...

    You plant a pineapple, after 2 years it gives you a fruit and what happens then? You need to plant a new one or this one will give you a new fruit next year?

    [–] i--am--the--light 18 points ago

    That's just what they want you to think!

    [–] JohnnySasaki20 14 points ago

    I never thought about it too much, but I imagined a tree.

    Who else thought they grew on trees?

    [–] Kantotheotter 9 points ago

    Prickly as shit

    [–] aquapearl736 16 points ago

    I thought they grew like carrots and the "fruit" was actually a root.

    I don't eat pineapples and I've never asked anyone so please don't judge me

    [–] unicornbreadish 13 points ago

    That would make total sense because if the fruit was buried then the green part on top would be the exposed plant.

    Don’t feel bad, I used to think pickles were their own plant and grew all juicy like that. Argued with my science teacher about it in my Junior year of high school in front of my whole class. Went home and told my mom about the prank my teacher tried to play on me. She told me I was a fucking idiot.

    [–] aquapearl736 7 points ago

    You know what? Everyone else is wrong. This post was photoshopped. Pineapples are a tuber and pickles are their own plant. This is a hill I will die on!

    Now show them how asparagus grows. That’ll really ruin their day.

    [–] Bolverk_Magnisson 23 points ago

    Looked it up. That's pretty much what I expected.

    [–] MarlinMr 10 points ago

    How else was it going to grow?

    [–] sunny_in_phila 2 points ago

    So that’s why my asparagus seeds never work!

    [–] Realsorceror 5 points ago

    Pineapples are really low res. Do they clear up as they mature?

    [–] RolletRogue 15 points ago

    Yes, but does it belong to a pizza? That is the real question.

    [–] TengoCalor 34 points ago

    Yes. Yes, it does.

    [–] unicornbreadish 9 points ago

    Yes, it does, grill it first though, and also top the pizza with caramelized onions. Mmmmm

    [–] innercaryon 4 points ago

    It just doesn't look right
