Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pineapple thread

Awesome Thread this will be helpful for others wanting to grow pineapple plants... you should only use calcium carbide if you have a-lot of plants and you want them all to flower around the same time.. otherwise let mother nature take care of it

There's no one size fits all fertilizer. It's dependent on your soil and water.

You can have soil or leaf analysis done, or use other means of determining what is needed.

Where I am, soils are dry for most of the growing season and pH tends to climb, so adding things like sulfur and gypsum greatly benefits most of the fruit trees in the orchard, as well as a source of potassium (sandy soils leach most of this during the rainy season). There tends to be enough plant residues to supply nitogen and the soil is not deficient in phosphorous.

Depending on your situation, you may have much amending to do or none. What kind of soil do you have and what is the typical rain situation throughout the year?
I'm going to be growing in pots using Pro-Mix HP potting mix.... I won't be growing in the ground

Hey EDG,

Try Brite Leaf Citrus Nursery in Lake Panasoffkee, FL.  They offer grafted 'Nules' Clementines, both regular and on dwarfing rootstock.  And if you will be growing it in a pot they sometimes have inexpensive, 'rooted cuttings' of it.

Here's a link to their website: [ www.briteleaf.com  ]

I've bought about a dozen different sorts of citrus from them and all have thrived.  Plants arrive always safely packed & are promptly shipped. My Clementine from them produced about a dozen fruit the first season I had it and it was still in the 5-gal pot that I'd planted it in to start off with.

OK — HTH

I really, really enjoyed the abacaxi I found at a store, but not even close to the best pineapple I have eaten, best I have eaten had honey oozing from between the segments.
Abacaxi pineapples are very sweet, and if you grow them you’ll love the fact that they are resistant to disease. They weigh from two to 11 pounds and are considered some of the tastiest types of pineapples, although they are a little too soft to use for commercial purposes. Abacaxi pineapples are spiny and tall, and they have juicy flesh that is white and nearly translucent in color.

The reason that they are rarely used commercially is that they do not ship well, due to the fact that they are extremely fragile. There are also different types of Abacaxi pineapples, including the Montufar, which is very yellow in color and extremely juicy, and the Sugarloaf variety, which is round or conical in shape and has a tender but rich flesh. In fact, Black Jamaica is actually derived from the Sugarloaf pineapple, so the Abacaxi pineapples come in several different varieties.

  Did you know why is it called  " White Abacaxi of Pernambuco" ? In the past century there were shiploads of this variety of Pineapple being shipped from the Port of Recife - Capital of the State of Pernambuco to Florida (USA) and other countries like Argentina.  This variety  is extremely sweet with white pulp. The fruit form is more conical compared to other "barrel" shaped pineapples.

Thanks for Sharing that info about it

from the photo looks like you don't have the plants deep enough that could be why they keep tipping over... if your going to grow pineapple plants in pots you should stake them up with some bamboo..... and only time ants are a problem with pineapple plants is if the plant has  mealybugs and from the photos i didn't see any mealybugs..... to help get rid of the ants try putting some diatomaceous earth on the top of the soil.... it has to be dry for it to work to kill the ants.... and i meant to say ant's wont hurt the plants its mealybugs you need to worry about that's mostly why ants would be on or living in a pineapple plant or soil

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Abacaxi Pineapple Plant

Wanted to share with the group the new pineapple plant i will be growing it's called
Abacaxi pineapple. Can't wait to see how it turns out


Abacaxi' (also called 'White Abacaxi of Pernambuco', 'Pernambuco', 'Eleuthera', and 'English') is well known in Brazil, the Bahamas and Florida. The plant is spiny and disease-resistant. Leaves are bluish-green with red-purple tinge in the bud. The numerous suckers need thinning out. The fruit weighs 2.2 to ll lbs (1-5 kg), is tall and straight-sided; sunburns even when erect. It is very fragrant. The flesh is white or very pale yellowish, of rich, sweet flavor, succulent and juicy with only a narrow vestige of a core. This is rated by many as the most delicious pineapple. It is too tender for commercial handling, and the yield is low. The fruit can be harvested without a knife; breaks off easily for marketing fresh.
