Guess I gotta keep trying ppk, never had one that even came close to a good OS or LZ.

Sweet Tart, Ceci Love, and Lemon Zest, and Kesar, and Guava, and.... would be my choices.

Yes KM is very tropical. My wife says itís worth planting for the tropical taste and size alone. I personally want to add another sugarloaf tree to my in ground collection OR a Pineapple Pleasure but PP raises lots of doubts like will it ever produce or should I plant something more productive in my Miami yard.

Limited yard size, go for productive. Try PP and if you/wife really like it. Then get it top grafted onto existing trees.

Kent is solid for August. I had one but the HOA meanies made me remove a few mango trees. I miss my Kent with old traditional Florida taste. A medium to large fruit. Upright grower so must be pruned to be bushy right from the start.

Kent is way too susceptible to disease.

Kent is not on our list of favorites.  Pineapple pleasure is probably our favorite of all time out of 75plus varieties we have tasted. Followed closely by E4. I just heard terrible things about PP being a very shy producer. Weiss has 13 trees of PP and 5 fruits between all of them this year.

That being said I still purchased one today 3 gallon and giving it the centerpiece spot in our big sunny yard. Iíve been saving that spot
For someone very special, and PP is that special someone, productive or not, itís our favorite and we must grow it.
