PINEAPPLE (Ananas bracteatus)
This fairly hardy bromeliad will grow in many NZ situations, and will produce sweet, juicy pineapples outdoors. A four year old clump can produce 10 or more pineapples. The flowers are spectacular as well. Plant in full sun or filtered light in well drained soil, dig in plenty of fertiliser and protect from frost. Suitable for container or open ground.The plants need to be staked against wind.
