I always find it exciting to see how something grows. I’ve eaten and loved pineapple my whole life but how many things do we eat and have no idea how it grew? It was interesting to see the stages of the pineapple growth and definitely how long it took to reach maturity! It sprouted around March and we just picked it, so 5 months?? Pretty unbelievable. Here are a few pics of the progress over the past several months.
Just as it was sprouting in March…
Looking like a pineapple!
Growing it’s big boy top 🙂
Getting closer to maturity. The skin got a little firmer and very green.
And there you have it! Fully ripened on the plant. It doesn’t get better than that!
