Remember that photo some time ago? The one of the pineapple in the orchard, propped to support it's enormous weight?
We have been sniffing it every other day for the past few weeks. It certainly looked ripe but we didn't want to pick it too early but it got to the stage that every time we walked past we could smell pineapple so we figured it had to be ready.
We ate it.
To be honest we probably left it a bit too long, there was a brown over ripe bit near the base, but otherwise pretty good, and we have kept the top to grow another plant.
