wow- I just picked and ate my 1st pineapple. It's a variety I got on EBAY a few years ago, called KONA Sugarloaf.
It sent up a flower stalk late this winter in gh.
The fruit was incredible, it was the sweetest pineapple I have /ever/ tasted- and the unique thing abut this one is that /the core is edible/, as good as the flesh of the pineapple-no fiber.
I already twisted off the top and potted it up, and I have at least one pup on the fruiting plant. I am tossing all of the other edible pineapples I have started over the past few years. This is it!
now can you get more tropical than that???
