update again the kauai white sugarloaf if you plan to grow them they don't like the cold at all and get freeze burn easy last
week we had a few days here in florida that were pretty cold i went to look at them and most of the leaves were white...
so i went online to do a search on pineapple white leaves meant freeze burn from cold temps around 50 or lower....
i just hope it didn't hurt them to bad that they will pull through

its crazy cause none of my other pineapple plant varitys took any damage from the cold

so far i have learned Kauai white sugarloaf plants are  sensitive to sun they burn easy on really hot days and now cold sensitive
guess that's why they do so great in Hawaii.... jude has said before the plant and fruit sun burn easy

Funny but my Sugarloaf and White Jade have not shown stress unlike a couple of "twistees".  Temps have dropped in the greenhouse to 35F at least 3 times and some are getting very white.  I don't think pineapples in general like temps below 45F
 


hey mine look just like what you showed in your photo... the white color on the leaves is damage from getting to cold....
its weird cause only my white sugarloaf got damage and all my other pineapple plants did fine

When temperatures drop to freezing, the pineapple plant may be damaged. Red or white burn spots on the leaves and rotting fruit indicate that the plant was exposed to temperatures at or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. While the pineapple can tolerate very brief periods of low or freezing temperatures, longer exposure may lead to the death of the plant.

Mine are almost full grown but like you said most pineapple plants don't handle cold weather very well I'm glad my queen and red Spanish are very cold tolerant and handle cold weather better

Got to try my first Sugarloaf pineapple today, and it was amazing. I immediately saved the top to plant later
