My neighbor grew this pineapple last year. They are very easy to grow but do take some time, about a year and half or more! The technique is simple, buy a pineapple from the store, cut off the top just below the spikey part and place it about an inch in the soil. Keep it watered at first, then just leave it alone. Next, wait 2 years and voila. I now have one growing in my yard that’s about 10 months old.
