Growing pineapple on Maui is incredibly easy. I simply spin the top of a store bought pineapple to remove it. Peel away a couple of the smaller leaves at the bottom and plant the sucker. This one was planted about a year ago, and has just recently begun to sprout a new pineapple. It will produce a pineapple about every 2 years, but they will get smaller each generation and will eventually become unusable. Garden is looking good!
