Piña on the Stalk

Pineapple-FruitWhile freezing and snowing in much of the nation, here in central Florida, I’m watching one of a dozen or so pineapple plants in my garden produce this beaut of a fruit. The best part of letting a pineapple ripen on its stalk is that 100% of the time the fruit is sweet, unlike store-bought pineapple, which tend to be tart.

It’s easy to propagate pineapples here too. Just chop off the top, stick in the ground, and water daily for about two weeks. It takes full sun and can up to about five feet tall, so give this edible bromeliad lots of room in your garden.

This particular pineapple is designated for my Piña Pie. More on that in a future post. Until then, I’ll be enjoying this sunshiny spot in my garden.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. So many WordPress layouts are not made for text but for pictures that I found this style the best, but I hear you about the text. I hear that content is important, so I’m redirecting my efforts to focus more on what I do best: Write. HAH! Thank you for the feedback.
