Pineapples flowering

Just noticed today that I have a whole lot of pineapples flowering. The centres of the plants were covered in fallen leaves and other debris. Cleaning them out I discovered this. There's 8 altogether.

RE: Pineapples flowering

How nice! How old are these plants?

RE: Pineapples flowering

I planted them out last season, but I moved them from elsewhere. And they were mixed ages anyway. So a bit hard to say. But from about one to two years old.

RE: Pineapples flowering

Cool! Only 1-2 years old and they're bearing fruit. I have a few here. I think more than 2 years old, but not fruiting yet. So, what do you feed them with?

RE: Pineapples flowering

I'm not regular with fertilising but when I do it's a weak solution of fish/seaweed fertiliser. My neighbours get huge pineapple fruit. They fertilise regularly, but I don't know what they use.

RE: Pineapples flowering

The pineapples are putting on some good growth, but still a fair way to go yet. There's 11 now so hope they don't all ripen at once.
