A totally dinky fruit. But what to do with the top? Not sure if cresting is a good thing at the expense of food. What do you think?

Wow, that's some funkiness. I can't tell, are you going to be able to separate all of those, or are they kind of too closely developed to come apart with enough body? How does it taste?

RE: crested pineapple

I have seen some very cristate mutants .. commercial grower had overfertilized just a touch to much . Some of the heads were almost 1m with dozens and dozens of tiny tops . Almost impossible to seperate . If you leave the top to dry and grow before seperating many more will survive . I got an Ananas tricolour fruit that gave me over 30 plants .. and one is close to flowering now .
