Several years ago I planted the tops of two fresh pineapples. I now have one small pineapple on each plant. I want to know when I can pick the pineapples.

Pineapples turn a golden yellow color and dvelop a nice pineapple fragrance. To harvest the pineapple, cut it off at the base of the fruit. The mother plant only fruits once. It will not survive long but will produce daughter plants from its base. These can be left in a clump or broken off and potted up as individual plants.
