This was just picked in our yard today, and it shows what a pineapple which has been allowed to ripen properly on the plant looks like.  You won't find one like this in the grocery store, because they're picked green and, once off the plant, they won't ripen optimally.  Deliciously sweet!

That's beautiful. Home grown, ripened on the vine anything always tastes better.

Very nice.  My oldest son loves pineapple.  Did you know you can grow a pineapple plant from the top of the fruit?

I tried a few times in St Pete but just before they were ready to harvest, the raccoons would have a picnic

Looks delicious!

I've heard raccoon is good.

But back to pineapple. I've also heard that the taste of a truly ripe pineapple is indescribable delicious. Enjoy it for us and ignore our salivating.

I've gotten ripe pineapples airmail delivered from Hawaii and it's not something you can taste from the grocery store here. 

Usually once a year only due to the cost. It's a nice way to reminisce about our honeymoon around our anniversary.

I hear bananas and tomatoes descibed the same way sort of. I suppose if I liked tomatoes I could grow them. Not pineapples or bananas sadly. 

I love a nice slice of pineapple grilled. 

Before having a fresh ripe one in Waikiki I thought I actually didn't like them. 

That one looks decadent Ricardo. I'm jealous.

Yes it is.  We currently have 41 pineapple plants scattered throughout, and 11 of them currently have fruit in some stage of development.

I am so jealous : one, at the fact you have fresh, ripe pineapples and two, you live in a place where you CAN grow pineapples!   Enjoy.
