Remember those pineapples we had growing?
Well one was well and truly ready to pick the other day.
We were all thankful that I stopped him, as it was probably the most delicious pineapple we have ever eaten. A pale buttery yellow it was sweet but smooth, a 'rounder' flavour than the shop bought ones, not as acidic.
I think it was due to two things - being left to fully ripen in the sun, on the plant, and being devoured within a few hours of being picked.
They take a while to grow & produce fruit, but they are well worth planting (and easy, just sit the top of your pineapple on the soil & let it go). They can be quite decorative too.
