Answer: What you have is an ornamental pineapple plant. Pineapples can actually grow into bushes containing several fruits. I suspect if you keep the plant healthy it will bush out and produce more fruits. If you want another pineapple plant you can start it by using the crown, slips, shoots, and suckers, off of the mother plant. These are all names for the same thing found on different parts of the plant. The crown is the leafy part at the top of the fruit. You can twist this off the fruit, let it dry for a few days then plant it in moist soil. After a few weeks it should grow roots. The slips, shoots, and suckers all grow on different parts of the plant but are basically the same. They'll look like little crowns growing out of either the base of the fruit, the base of the leaves, or the base of the plant(soil). You can pluck them off and plant them in moist soil the same as a crown. Good luck with your plant!
