Pineapple is a delicious, nutritious fruit with its main attribute being bromelain, which is utilized for its anti-inflammatory properties. You probably don’t think about growing a pineapple when you purchase it from the grocery store.

However, this is a fun and nutritionally beneficial way to obtain pineapple. These simple steps will teach you how to grow a pineapple.

• When looking for a pineapple, search for one that has firm green leaves that have not turned yellow or brown.

• The skin on the fruit is healthy if it is golden brown.

• Twist the leaves off the top of the pineapple.

• Take off the lower leaves, and you will find the stem.

• Turn it upside down and allow it to dry for about a week.

• It is now that you can plant the crown into the soil.

• Fill a large glass with water and fit the pineapple crown inside.

• Use toothpicks to suspend the pineapple crown in the glass of water.

• The leaves should be sticking out from the top.

• Put the glass in a sunny window and wait for the roots to sprout.

• Make a pot of soil for the crown.

• Make sure that any remaining leaves are directly above the soil level.

• The plant needs to stay in a warm sunny area where the temperature is constant and somewhere between sixty and seventy degrees.

• Provide food and water for the plant.

• Water soil once a week and fertilize the plant with half-strength fertilizer twice a month during the summer.

• It could take a few years, but ultimately, you will see a red cone appearing from the center of the leaves, and there will be blue flowers.

• It will grow from the above-ground flowers and transform into luscious, succulent tropical fruit.
