Growing Pineapples In Northern Climates
I wanted to know if anyone has fruited there pineapples. I have one now that I grew from a top and the leaves are now about a foot long. I am pretty sure that fruiting will happen pretty soon. I put it outdoors and tried to aclimate it to avoid leaf scorch but it did get it. I want to know if it would be better to force the pineapple to bloom now or if I should just let it bloom when it is ready. My only concern with letting it bloom on its own is that it will bloom in the fall and then I am going to have a hard time with giving it enough sun to produce a sweet fruit. Any suggestions?
