Did you know that it is quite easy to grow your own Hawaiian pineapple plant? Pineapple plants are not grown from a seed or plant cutting, but rather from the green spikey crown at the top of every pineapple fruit!
If you live in Hawaii growing a pineapple plant is as easy as literally throwing the pineapple crown onto some dirt in your yard and making sure it gets rained on everyday (easy to do if you live in Hilo, Hawaii where it rains a lot!), or watering it by hand. Of course if you take the time to bury it in the ground a few inches and fertilize it, your pineapple plant will probably do much better. We have planted dozens of pineapples the lazy way and nice way, and they have both bore sweet juicy pineapple fruit after two years -- yes, it takes that long for a delicious ready to eat fruit to appear.
If you do not live in a tropical zone or do not have a yard to grow things in, you can grow a pineapple plant in a pot as a houseplant. I already researched online for you and this is the best directions I found for growing a pineapple plant indoors.
If you do not have fresh Hawaiian pineapples at your local supermarket, you can order fresh pineapple fruit with crowns online. Ship them to yourself or to someone else as a delicious gift that may end up being the gift that keeps on giving!
