Pineapple Slips - Sebastian Pineapple Ranch
« on: July 11, 2023, 04:30:03 PM »
Fellow TFF Growers, I have a few slips to sell if you're interested.  First come, first served.  PLEASE msg or email me w/ what you'd like to make sure I have what you want.  I'll try my best to describe the different cultivars and my experience growing them - everyone has different growing conditions and habits, but I'll try and offer some characteristics.  Cost is $20 per slip - buyer pays for postage which I can quote if you send your address w/ what you'd like.  Most orders go out in a padded envelope which has worked well and keeps postage reasonable.  If you need a specific carrier - please advise (Some folks do not care for USPS service carrying delicate plant material.  I get it, and can work to accommodate).

Cheesepine - Good sized plants with Excellent flavor.  Very hardy.  Spiked variety.  Few slips, but will produce pups under fruits.  Clip them early for larger fruit or leave them attached for additional plants.  Loves fertilizer, few pests... even nematodes go easy on these.  I have 8 good sized pups.

Las Marias - A beautiful pineapple from the West Side of Puerto Rico up in the high country above Lajas.  Large globe fruit that matures to caramel brown to orange.  The larger the pot, the bigger the fruit and these plants can push big fruit.  Very tasty, very sweet. Spiked variety. Few slips.  Produces in places where others struggle - with part sun and a lot of rain I still managed to get great results.  I have 4 pups.

Antigua Black - An iconic pineapple that is surprisingly hard to find.  Grows (supposedly) the sweetest pineapple at 17-18 brix.  These samples came from a plant I sourced from the famous Clemmies Fruit Stand at Cades Bay, Antigua.  Prefers lots of sun and dry conditions.  Spiked variety that produces both slips and pups if fertilized frequently.  The more you fert, the more offspring.  Conversely, lower fert actually produces a larger fruit.  Sounds counterintuitive.  Not as robust to cold and rough handling as some of the other spiked varieties, so should be grown in an area protected from high wind.  Fruit quality is very good.  Flower and fruit are beautiful.  Fruit starts out blackberry colored and turns dark orange when it is ripe.  Narrow barreled fruit.
I have 2 pups.

Nanas Pada (or Sawit). A pineapple from the North side of Borneo in Malaysia.  Has delicious fruit - some compare it to a very large Queen (if Queen were to get that large). Tolerant of high wind and a cold snap.  Robust, stout plants with spikes.
Can produce both slips and pups (it varies by location and plant apparently) - and large fruits can be grown if the grower keeps the slips and pups clipped.  Another variety that will push big fruit if you grow it in the ground or in a large pot.  It's root stock holds firm when other plants tend to lose their grip if the medium gets soggy - which is a positive trait this year in Florida.  A keeper in my book.  I have 7 slips.

Dellerman Gold - A pineapple that is getting more and more attention as people find out about it.  Sold traditionally at a roadside stand one or two weekends a year - the fruit is now becoming more sought after by people driving down to FL from upstate and GA.  The best hybrid fruit has a strong hint of coconut and/or vanilla.  Complex fruit flavor that is absolutely unique and world class.  I have 18 plants that were chosen from hundreds of taste-tasted fruit to provide the strongest genetics.  The slips I offer are from strong flavored fruit stock.  For a video that shines some light on the local grower and his fruit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J_kix8Lsms.  Loves fertilizer - will handle a cold snap well, but obviously pull the plant indoors if there's a frost advertised.  Cold will cause this plant to bolt (or produce an off-timed, early flower) leading to smaller fruit size.  Still delicious results regardless. Once the plant produces a flower, the time to fruit maturity is relatively quick, compared to many of the other cultivars - typical of MD 1 and MD2.   I have 12 slips.

Thanks everyone.

Hipasfolk - I've sent you a couple msgs :). I have your pack in front of me with what you requested... all I need is your address and full name for a postage estimate - I scale at the PO to make sure it's actual.  Then payment to me via PayPal after I send your total.  You were the 3rd response to the listing.
Thank you! 

Shoot me an email or msg via the TFF.
