pineapples are a joy to grow in your garden once you see how easy it is to grow pineapples at home you will never look back let’s look at growing pineapples now you can easily start your pineapple plant by buying a pineapple first now you can be specific and buy an organic pineapple that way you’ll get no pesticide residue with it but in either case you can just buy any pineapple that you get in your market and then what we’re going to do is just remove the head just like that the top part of the pineapple and then make sure that you cut well along the side like just like that and the reason is that you don’t want a lot of pineapple flesh remaining on the top when you’re planting it now all you do is take a glass of water you can take any container I just find that this glass that we see here this fits in very well with the shape of the pineapple so it kind of holds it in place and what you’re going to do is leave it for a few days like this in the Sun and then what will happen is it will trigger the pineapple to produce roots as you can see here from the base of the top part of the pineapple and within a few days you can see that the roots have grown in the water and you can keep changing the water every few days and slowly you’ll see that the roots have developed and when you see that the roots are significant enough long enough you can transplant them into a container now i would recommend at least at this sized container that you see here for growing pineapple this is about 16 inches wide 16 inches high container and the ideal size of course a whiskey barrel sized container now four months since planting you can see that the plant has now developed these leaves the leaves have become wider and longer and within about six months you will see that the leaves are more developed they might turn a little darker green in color and that just means that they’re growing well and eventually you will see that in about 10 months you will see the shoot growing this is the main trunk of the pineapple plant that will eventually produce the pineapple and the kind of soil that you want to use for your pineapple should be a well draining soil make sure that you have a lot of compost though because your pineapple plant needs a lot of nutrition when it is growing in the first year at least and the plant will grow really fast during the first one and a half years and at this stage at 15 months I just thought that this plant was too big for this container it was just branching out a lot and it needed more space so what i did was i transplanted this plant into a larger container now it wasn’t easy because the pineapple plant has a lot of spines and very sharp leaves but as you can see your i managed to do that and this is why i recommend that you start your plant in a whiskey barrel container if you can it’s not that the plant is not going to grow in the other container it just looks better and has more space in this container now 22 months since planting i was still waiting for my pineapple plant to produce pineapples and that’s when I saw the first sign of a flower or a bud growing now it might take a long time for your pineapple plant to produce flowers so just be patient just keep growing your pineapple plant just keep giving it the adequate fertilizer it needs and you will eventually get your fruit and as you can see here the bud is very evident now and the pineapple bud the pineapple flower is one of the prettiest i’ve seen you need to grow your pineapple plants in full Sun they need at least eight hours of sunlight a day and you can keep it year-round outdoors in places like Southern California they will survive through winters and still produce pineapples in the next year now 24 months since planting you can see that our fruit now looks very much like a pineapple and this is really the moment of truth this is when you know your plant is going to produce a nice fruit now the larger pineapple plant is the larger fruity will get but when you’re doing this at home don’t worry about it even if you have a decently sized plant you will get decently sized pineapples the key is to grow sweet delicious organic pineapples the key is not to grow huge pineapples like they do commercially as you can see here the stock is very evident now and the pineapple is now growing very well into a larger fruit very much looks like a pineapple now now I didn’t have any problems with any insects or diseases on my pineapple plant the only thing that I noticed was a slight discoloration of leaves when I transplanted my plant but I added some fertilizer some fruit fertilizer around the base of the plant a slow release one and it worked very well you need to add fertilizer for pineapple plants at least twice per growing season i would recommend you add one fertilizer in February followed by one in June that will give you the best results for your pineapple you can see here that it’s been 29 months now since we planted our plant and the pineapple is slowly ripening and it slowly begins to look very much like a fruit that is growing on this pineapple plant indeed a very beautiful plant to grow in your garden and within a few days this plant will ripen it will start turning yellow and once the fruit turns about fifty percent yellow you can be sure that you can harvest your pineapple now in my case I was able to see that the fruit was turning yellow and when i tried to smell the fruit it smelled a little fruity so it was about time to harvest the pineapple now the pineapple plant has enough defenses to guard against a lot of predators but you still do not wait too long so use a nice big pruner to cut the pineapple from the tree its a pretty thick stalk by the way and as you can see here beautiful-looking pineapple almost yellow all around and it smelled very fruity very much ready for harvest and this is really the moment of truth when you harvest your pineapple it’s a really good feeling to harvest your own fruits in your back yard and considering that the pineapple just needs a small container to grow it’s something that you must grow in your garden doesn’t this look beautiful and i hope this inspires you to just buy a pineapple buy any pineapple from your store and start your plants plant them in a pot it doesn’t matter if you have a lot of space or not you can easily grow one plant in a container in your garden in your patio in your balcony and is a very beautiful looking plant so do try it out as you can see here we are trying to cut open the pineapple now it’s a pretty decently sized fruit again not huge as you would get in the grocery store but I’m hoping that the subsequent pineapples from my plant will be larger you can see here beautiful looking fruit and this is how I know to cut a pineapple if you have a better way to cut a pineapple do let me know in the comments below you can see a beautiful-looking fruit we’re going to cut the thorny parts the sides of the pineapple fruit and this is how it looks like again you can see juicy and beautiful you can see the juices dripping down from this piece of pineapple we’re going to be cutting the sides the thorns and this is a really beautiful-looking pineapple for those of you have been waiting to grow a pineapple or were on the edge i hope this inspires you to grow your own pineapple it is very easy to grow believe me there’s nothing that should stop you from growing your pineapples or at least try them out you won’t have problems with a lot of predators insects diseases it’s just easy to grow in a small container you need a decently sized container not very small but I’m sure that by just following a simple guide like this one you should be able to grow your own pineapples and it’s a real joy to harvest fruits like pineapple at home these are not fruits that you usually grow at home now if you are living in an area where you get very cold winters you can get your pineapple plant indoors during the winter months your pineapple plant is not going to survive a frost outside so make sure that you get your plants indoors but in places like Southern California where you have milder winters you can keep your plants outside like I did and you can see that the plant has survived for a long time outside and it’s a great plant to grow in places like zone 9 or above and here are the pineapple pieces as you can see beautiful-looking pineapple right from your backyard and this is a real joy i highly recommend that you try growing pineapples in your home right away it’s gonna make you very happy you’ll be very happy that you grew pineapples at home and what happened to the pineapple three after the harvest as you can see here it’s now developing a side shoot you can see here on the left side there’s another shoot growing and i hope to get one more pineapple hopefully this year somewhere around june or july that I’ll be able to harvest so there we have it folks that was our episode on growing pineapples this video took a long time to film and make so if you like this video please don’t forget to give us a thumbs up and if you have any questions do let us know in the comments below if you have tried growing pineapples or are planning to grow pineapples now that you’ve seen the video to let us know in the comments as well we’ll see you again soon happy gardening

    It does take a while for the pineapple to bear fruit if you grow it from the 'head' like that. Try growing the 'child' plant that grows besides the parent plant (leave the plant even when you have harvested the fruit and it will grow those 'children'). These 'child' plant tend to bear fruit a lot quicker then the head (7-8 months). Btw: very good video!

    PS: props to the video guy, his accent is entertaining, too. But that's gotta be the worst way to cut a pineapple ever.
    Also at 10:42, after excruciating work, he "highly recommends" you to grow one. Man, he's prob the most positive person ever.

    I have started growing my first pineapple plant, and I must say that it takes a boatload of patience! I live in a much colder region so I have to keep my pineapple plant inside, although it has been in a south-facing window as it grows roots (in water). I am using a quart-sized mason jar, and I took off some of the lower leaves so there was more space from which the roots could grow. It has been a few months now and I am ready to pot my plant. I am a little worried about winter when we will not have as much sun (if any at all since we have a lot of cloudy days). I will still keep it inside at a south-facing window… I figure it may take a bit longer to mature because of the lack of sun and the fact that it may be a bit cold next to the window, but we won't know until we try!

    For Pineapple Beer: put the skins in a bowl and just cover with water. Place the bowl on a high shelf for a few days (it's warmer there), and you the natural yeasts on the skin will create a very light and refreshing beer.

    I grew a pineapple from one I bought from the store. It took over 2 years to fruit. Then before I could harvest my first fruit, someone stole it.

    The neighbor who took my pineapple confessed about 2 months after the fact. She returned the head in a pot and brought me a pineapple from the store 😂.
    I just wished that I could have tasted the first fruit from my labor…..😭

    You have to cut the skin off first! Then slice or dice it up! Much easier! Ive grown about 3 pineapples in 4 or 5 years. They take awhile to grow, but the good thing is that they are easy to start off. I started with one pineapple from the grocery store. Then I cut the top off and started growing. 5 years later I have about 6 plants growing in my backyard, and have harvested 3 so far. Interesting plant to grow and very beautiful as well. Another thing the guy in the video didn't note. When the pineapple fruit starts to bud, it will attract aphids, and in turn, ants. They will form a colony on the pinepple bud and stalk. This isn't a bad thing, from what I have seen, and doesn't affect the pineapple in a bad way. But if you do feel wierd about it, you can wash them off with a hose. Though, they will be back the very next week!

    Hi Im from Philippines. A busy working mom. Ive tried growing pineapple learning from youtube video . Ive placed it on the 2nd floor of my masters bedroom balcony with a lot of sunlight. My 1st batch, 6 pcs already 7 mos and still growing fast and my 2nd batch 1 mo old, 6 pcs. Its a nice feeling waking up every morning, seeing and greeting them a happy morning. Its also an effective stress reliever after busy days work. Thanks for the tips, appreciated much.

    Did this eons ago, planted pineapple top leftover from a fruit salad and much to my surprise the pineapple grew nicely. I planted the top into a large pot and some months later the plant got leafier and eventually I noticed a small fruit growing in the middle of the leaves. The fruit got bigger & bigger and eventually I harvested it. Was quite tasty. Mine grew outdoors the entire time.
