Pineapples are known for being a sweet and juicy fruit that we eat from time to time. It is also very helpful to us, did you know that by eating pineapples it will help fight parasite in your body and also it’s anti- inflammatory. Yes pineapples are very beneficial to use and is very good and sweet. I found out in the Philippines they use it quit a bit, they eat it and us it as a anti-inflammatory. The total world production of pineapples in 2007 was more then 18 million tons. And today the production is still growing because more and more people want to grow there very own pineapples. Now you ask your self how can I be part of this amazing growth of pineapples, how can I plant my own? If you’d like to learn how to grow a pineapple that will yield a sweet-tasting fruit, then you’ve come to the right place. Starting your own pineapple plant is easy, even if you don’t live in a tropical climate. It’s easy to grow your own pineapple plant, regardless of where you live. Pineapple is one of the world’s most unique and exotic tropical fruits, yet it is possible to grow it in a temperate zone under controlled conditions. Pineapple is a herbaceous perennial with long sword-like leaves arranged in a spiral around a central stem. First of all you need a pineapple or at least the top of one. Commonly, people who tell you how to grow a pineapple will say that you next will need to slice sections of the stem until you see small circles around the cut end called root buds. Your leftover pineapple top from the previous step is all you need to grow a pineapple. To make the most use of the pineapple, use the pineapple corer. A pineapple corer will make this job easy but you can also use a knife. You may also clip the tips off of the plants as if you leave them outside too long and the cold turned their tips brown. Pineapple plants are self-incompatible, meaning pollen from the same variety will not result in seed production and seedy fruit. However, growing several varieties next to each other and flowering simultaneously may result in seedy fruit. The fruit of pineapple is a seedless, each ovary turns into a seedless berry and then the berries fuse together into a single unit, the multiple fruit or Soros’s that we call the pineapple. Because of the lack of an overflowing supply of seeds, using the cutting from the top of an eaten pineapple is the ideal way to go.I wanted to point out that pineapples are actually bromeliads, and so do not ever have seeds. It is possible to start, and even grow your pineapple in water, but nutrients which can be purchased at a gardening store must be added. In cold areas, planting near structures will afford plants some cold protection during the winter, but it will slow plant growth. Move your pineapple plant outside in the summer, and in the winter, keep it indoors near a sunny window. This process is best started in the winter when a pineapple normally begins this process. If your winter weather is any worse than the occasional freeze, plant your pineapple in a pot where you can take it inside. During the winter, keep the plant indoors near a sunny window. Where I live, there is an occasional frost each winter, but that’s about the worst of the cold weather. During summer, set your plant on a sunny porch or bury the pot in your garden. Fertilize the plant with half-strength fertilizer twice a month during the summer. During the summer months, the plant can be placed outdoors in the sun. Select the warmest area of the landscape that does not flood or remain wet after typical summer rains. Fertilize using a regular houseplant fertilizer once or twice a month during the spring and summer months. For more tips on gardening to http://www.Teegoes.org

I have eight pineapple plants started from slips and suckers planted in the planter in front of my house. This summer we had about a month of morning temperatures in the twenties. I covered my plants but since the cold lasted so long, 7 of the 8 plants were apparently exposed to the sub-freezing temperatures. They area paler green with the leaves having brown tips. The eighth plant is bearing a pineapple. Will the cold-affected plants recover or should I remove them and start over?

Otto’s Pineapple

My cat Otto really has a thing for pineapples and refrigerators. I like doing videos showing all of the cool things Otto does. My first videos that actually got me started making videos as a hobby were Otto videos. This one was done in the same style as the previous ones. Also, no, I did not leave my cat in the fridge. I thought it was obvious. The door closed on him and I immediately opened it back up.
