To our great surprise one day we found that the
pineapple plant in our yard was bearing a pineapple!
It's been fun to watch it grow from stage to stage.
**note: Our pineapple plant was in the garden when we arrived. It has long, narrow, fleshy leaves with sharp spines along the edges. The pineapple is a short-lived perennial plant which grows up to 4.9" tall. Pineapples produce just one fruit before dying. The Spanish introduced it into the Philippines, and S.E. Asia dominates world-production of pineapples, but there's nothing like watching one grow in your own yard!
