Did you know that pineapple fruit is actually created by up to 200 tiny flowers that join together to make one massive fruit?
I didn't.
My pineapple plant is FINALLY producing fruit! It's been about a year and a half since I stuck the old top in the soil. Here's a close up:
I'm hoping this one survives to at least a slightly decent size. The last pineapple we had fruit grew to the size of a grapefruit and than promptly died. If it doesn't work this time at least I have reinforcements on the way!
