The Pineapple-Top Grower’s Handbook

Submitter: Yes, it’s an entire book on how to grow a pineapple top. Was that hard to do in 1979?

Holly: Maybe this was a revolutionary idea to home gardeners in 1979. They didn’t have the benefit of seeing posts on this in Pinterest every time they log in. (And doing the same thing with potatoes, avocados, ginger, etc. etc. etc.) The 70s were a simpler time.

      1. cutting of the top and planting it will propagate an entirely new pineapple plant. If you wait long enough (and can keep the plant alive long enough) you will get another pineapple.

  1. And, oddly enough, yesterday I came home with a pineapple top from my partners place…what a timely ALB!
