Does it get any cuter than a pineapple plant with fruit? We doubt it. Nestled among the spiky foliage, the tasty fruit — which symbolizes hospitality — can be harvested and eaten once they are ripe. Save the top, replant them, and wait for a new one to grow. One of the easiest tropical plants to care for, they just need lots of sunshine and a little water.

We do not recommend eating the red variety of this plant.

Pineapple Plant with Fruit

Pineapple Plant With Fruit: Overview

The Pineapple Plant (Ananas comosus) is a bushy tropical plant with thick, spiky leaves. It grows a central stalk with an edible pineapple fruit on top. Although the Pineapple may resemble a small palm tree in shape, the plant isn’t a tree or bush but a terrestrial bromeliad. The edible Pineapple plant is also known as Ananas sativus, Bromelia comosa, or Ananas ‘Mi Amigo’.  

Pineapple plants can grow up to 3-4 ft. in height. Native to South America, the Bromeliad Pineapple plant requires a warm and humid environment and can be grown outdoors in hardiness zones 10-11. It takes a Pineapple plant about 3 years to reach maturity and start to bloom (if the conditions are right). It usually lasts for 5 to 7 years. 

The pineapple inflorescence looks like a red or deep pink pineapple fruit, but the actual flowers are tiny, purple blooms hidden in the fold of each spike. Pineapples are easy-to-care-for plants. They love the sun and need plenty of water. Because of their shallow root system, Pineapple plants can grow quickly in a pot. 

While the Pineapple Ananas is considered non-toxic to pets, its unripe fruit can cause mouth, throat, and stomach irritation in pets and small children.

In Chinese culture, pineapples symbolize warm welcome and hospitality and are believed to bring good luck. According to Feng Shui, they attract abundance and promote well-being.

Pineapple Plant: Care Guide

The Pineapple Plant care is surprisingly easy. Here are some key tips to get you started:

Watering and Humidity

Finding the right balance in watering is often key to growing a pineapple plant successfully. Water your plant regularly and abundantly once the top soil layer gets dry. It’s important to keep the soil from getting soggy, however. As a tropical plant, the Ananas needs plenty of humidity. To increase humidity, mist your indoor Pineapple plant, group it with other plants, or place the pot on a pebble tray.

Light and Temperature

The Ananas plant needs 6-8 hours of bright, indirect light. It grows best in warm temperatures from 68 to 85. If you intend to grow your plant outdoors on the porch, always bring it indoors if the night temperatures drop below 45°F.

Soil, Feeding and Repotting

Choosing the right soil for your Ananas comosus is important to prevent overwatering. Plant it in well-draining, rich soil mixed with perlite for enhanced drainage. Feed your Pineapple plant regularly with a well-balanced fertilizer.

Most Pineapple plants won’t need repotting for 6-12 months after purchase. Before you repot your plant, water it well the previous day. Use a 2-inch larger pot to provide space for the roots. Trim any damaged or rotting roots with sterile pruners.

Propagation

You can quickly propagate your Pineapple Bromeliad plant by cutting off the leafy top of your pineapple fruit. Remove the fruit flesh and peel off the lower leaves. Let the cut top callus for several days, and then plant in moist, well-draining soil. Place the new plant in bright, indirect light. Keep the soil consistently moist. You can also propagate your plant via suckers.

Pruning, Cleaning, and Common Issues

Prune any wilting or damaged leaves on your plant. It’s normal for the lower leaves to wilt after repotting or aging to make way for new leaves, so remove them carefully. Shower your plant to remove dust once in a while. Yellowing leaves can indicate overwatering or lack of light.

    So cute!

    This pineapple plant was a gift for my cousin. She said it arrived lovingly and carefully packed, and in great condition.!

    I only wish I could have selected my shipping date, as it was supposed to be a Christmas gift. But once ordered, it ships….. so she received her Christmas gift very early.

    .beautiful but the fruit was short lived.

    The plant was beautiful when it arrived. However within a week the fruit stem collapsed and will likely fall off soon.
