This is what a pineapple looks like when I ripens on the plant. It is small and the ruler is a standard twelve inches. The color is so pretty I almost hate to eat it. You don’t find them in the store that color.
I can’t grow much where I live because the lack of space. Pineapples really grow well here in my flower bed. The plants have produced two this year. I have six plants right now. The two pineapples are small because the plant was started from a pineapple top. I will start another plant from the top. The second pineapple is not quite ready to pick.
I also have an establish grape vine that grows in South Florida but I have no idea the name of the grape. They are sweet large and don’t grow in bunches. With all this rain I should get enough to can a few pints. The vine gets trimmed back in December and then I just let it grow in the spring,keeping it from taking over the whole car port. This grape sets fruit on the new wood on the end. They should be ready in August when the grape starts to turn half way brown. When I bought the vine fifteen years ago it was on a mark down cart for a dollar.
