One year our Target store (Ohio) was selling pineapple plants in the houseplants section! Very interesting but haven't seen this since.

Someone gave me an African pineapple that is a smaller varietty (apple-sized). This might make and interesting shot-sized drink!

Hey pineapple people!

I got a strange thing happening. Any help would be cool. I have a small crown growing by itself 2 feet away from my other pineapple plantation(basically growing out of my white ginger roots). I did not plant it. It was burried in weeds. I thought they just grew from tops and stems????? Do they self root too?? I'm trippin!

First to answer ya Ben: The little I know about these plants I learned in Miami (well actually Florida City) when I helped my Ma do a 'plant run' up there for her landscaping biz. She took me around to a few very cool nurserys (including one called Going Bananas that had scores of strange varieties of bananas) and one we toured was a nursery that specialize in the plants known as bromeliads. Pineapples are a bromeliad which means like most bromeliads they are generally non-terrestrial, in other words they take root in trees. If you have been to tropical South America (where they originate, see the movie Hawaii ) you'll see bromeliads eveywhere in the trees. So they are quite aggresive to take root and generally they take years to flower which they do only once and then die. And that is all I know about that......

On another note, I had a debate with a bar owner frind of mine whilst in the Philippines as to the origins and correct way to make a Pina Colada. I did some net homework on the subject and serving them in hollowed pineappples is certainly the classic thing to do. As I found from this article which is worth a gander

OK I answered my own question. This looks like a good source http://www.thegadgetsource.com/084256488225.html

I've seen the Pineapple Corers in several places...try any kitchen specialty store. They're easy and work great. Make sure to get the one with three sizes of corers, to better match the size of the pineapple.

My favorite part is letting the juices seep out into the shell after removing the rings. Mmmmmmm, fresh pineapple juice!

I live in the middle of the Midwest. Has anyone grown potted pineapples that they put outdoors as well as indoors?

If so, any tips?

Hey, I thought this thread was about drinks served in pineapples! (Ok, so I'm trying to grow the top from this one as we speak)

Here's mine, and I just bought PAD so I should be able to do a MUCH better job with the garnish next time.

Once the drink is in me, hasn't it already been served?

Got a ripe one that is going to be taste tested by Smogbreather tomorrow eve. Nothing like the taste of a homegrown pineapple with a little Shag with a Twist for a chaser.
