Is Pineapple ripe, (transplant?)
I purchased a pineapple from HD about 4 months ago. I transfered it to a 5gal. w/ MG-potting mix. It quickly tripled in size and the fruit grew a little larger than a softball. It is now deep amber/orange though still very firm. Is it ready to be cut?, and if so, should remove the mother plant and replant the fruit top? The mother plant hasn't grown any suckers, so I worry if I leave it after cutting the fruit it will only die. Thank you all for your help. And good luck with your harvest this year! Sincerely, Chris in Largo.
