I love pineapples.
I've thought seriously about growing pineapples in our back yard, next to our victory garden that currently is filled with kale, spinach, and other green things.
And yes, I'm well aware that I live in New York, pineapples are tropical, and that I'd need a serious indoor set-up to actually grow anything of note.
Beyond that, pineapples are kind of a difficult plant. They only ever flower once, and they only ever grow one pineapple. You can take the pineapple babies – they're called suckers – and use them to make new pineapple plants. This is all way more labor-intensive than the national crop of northern Westchester, which is apple trees.
