Here's a real novelty indoor plant that will provide interest every day as you see your own deliciously sweet pineapple develop atop this well-established, potted plant.
A member of the Bromeliad family, it's the perfect indoor plant for a sunny kitchen or conservatory windowsill, needing little care and attention save a little water and the occasional feed.
The plants are exactly the same as those used in commercial pineapple plantations across the world, so you can be assured of the best tasting fruit – right here in the UK on your windowsill. Do not confuse these big specimens with tiny decorative, non-edible plant available elsewhere online.
Each plant is delivered with a pineapple fruit already growing so your plant is guaranteed to fruit this year. For best results water the compost keeping it moist and also keep a little water in the cups of the leaf rosette.
When the pineapple is plump and ripe (about the size of an orange) remove and enjoy! Once the fruit is removed, an offset will appear which may fruit in following years and an entirely new plant can even be raised by cutting off the leaf crown and planting in compost.
