At the end of last week, W and I harvested the pineapple from the plant in our backyard. It was obviously much smaller than what is available for purchase in the grocery stores. The flavor was wonderful - very sweet and juicy. The top was huge. It is as big as some of our one year old plants. It did not get thrown away though. We prepped it and have place it in a wide mouth quart jar to root. We did have to wait 2+ years for this homegrown pineapple, but it was free and certainly worth the wait!
