PUD goes from light green to parchment in the sun. NORMAL. Relax. Similar to a pineapple that turns from green to yellow. Great name don't you think?

no.. i hate the name ... it worse than all the lakesides ...

YOU CANT FIT IT ON A LABEL WITH A LABLEMAKER.. OTHER THAN MAKING THE PRINT SO SMALL ... you cant read it anyway ...

yes.. its in TOO MUCH SUN .. it MIGHT ... continue to melting out.. because of such.. and if it does.. dont come running back and asking what that disease is ... as babs said.. its all normal ..

move it to a spot .. where it is out of sun from noon to 6 ... out of the sun.. during the heat of the day ...

and use that logic for anything with a large white center ...

the white tissue is a net drain ont eh plant.. producing no chlorophyll .... and on some level.. the plant cant pump enough water to sustain it.. when siting is not proper ...

so when this happens... move it to a little more shade ...

Yeah,mine is almost white at this time of year,but it grows well,so I'm not worried. Ken,I put my label on two different lines on the name tag,but I really don't need a name tag;it is so easily recognizable. Phil

Mine just goes from green to soft yellow. Morning sun. This year I got a companion for it...Pineapple Punch, with reverse color. Not near a camera right now.

Yeah, I had to move mine three times before I found a spot where it didn't turn white a melt out by August.

Thanks everyone for the info, I will move it to a shadier spot. Ken, the name is way too big for my labels too. I also have Pineapple Punch but that one seems to be fine.

I would much rather try to fit pineapple upside down cake on a label than tokeyourmama flavorcircushallows … or … supercalifragilisticexpealidosios …. but I agree … it's a long name … kinda like 'smiles' .. it is a mile between the s's
