My pineapple plant is just starting to get a flower. How long until I get fruit? (My wild guess is 18 months. I know these things don't hurry.)

Hurray! Hurray! Kelli!

Kelli, I think my fruits took about 10 months to ripen from the time I noticed the inflo.

Hey Kelli, how is your pineapple doing? Do you get to keep them outdoors during winter or do you bring it in?

That is a nice video Geo! Thanks for sharing it. Something to look forward to Smiling Yeah, I think that is my impediment here in my growing area, the cold season. Rolling my eyes.
