My Mom has been growing a pineapple on her back porch to see if she could produce an edible fruit. After three years of care she finally had a mature pineapple. We recently harvested and cut it, and I can honestly say it was the best pineapple I have ever tasted; sweet, moist and full of flavor. She's got another one going,... maybe in three more years.
