End of season Pineapples

Not sure if I'll try to hold these on the plant through the winter here in Houston. Another month of summer and they'd be ripe on the plant. They take up a bit of room, but the taste of plant ripened is like candy.

Thanks Phil. Here in Houston it takes about 2 years from cutting the top off a pineapple to first flower/fruit. Then a plant will make a couple Pineapples each following year.

My brother on Oahu has trouble growing pineapples in an area that used to be a pineapple field. His dogs go crazy after them. I also have found varmits are fond of them. I now wrap mine in chicken wire when they start to get ripe.
