White Jade Pineapple Coming Soon, to a Nursery near you!
« on: November 01, 2012, 02:30:04 PM »
White Jade Pineapple plants are coming along nicely, and should be available sometime early next year.

These pineapples are said to be white fleshed, extremely sweet, low acid, with an edible core, on a thornless plant (cayenne type).

This cultivar was selected in Hawaii, by Dr. Zee.

One problem with commercially growing this cultivar, is the fact that they are so soft upon harvesting!  A problem that shouldn't bother home growers, and those with smaller operations.  That being said, I've heard these pineapples are so sweet and juicy its remarkable.

This sounds like a wonderful pineapple, that should deserve planting in many home gardens, in the ground and in containers! 
 
Supposed to be like sugar loaf, but better!


If you are interested in getting some plants, I can reserve some for you, or your nursery.

I'm not quite sure how many will be available (most likely about 200-500), but these plants are from tissue culture, and will have separate pricing for those in FL, and those out of state.

There is no minimum order, but single plants will cost a bit more.  I think the price will range, depending on how many you order, and your location, from about $5.00-$1.25 per plant, before shipping.  The plants will be small, about 4-6inches tall, and in trays.

Shipping should be available, anywhere in the USA.

If you're interested you can contact me through the forum, or post here, and I will email you.

(I am not the company offering these! I am helping the nursery who has these, to advertise!)

THERE IS NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED TO REQUEST PLANTS, MONEY IS DUE UPON THE ACTUAL SALE, NOT IN ADVANCE!

THANKS!!

Adam

Bendersgrove,

I'm on it!

I will keep you informed!

your price will be on the lower side, being you're in FL, and buying as a nursery.

Thanks!!!!!

You are second to request, and I will make sure you get served accordingly.

Asaffron, may I reserve a couple plants too? I have reserved a grafted Ross Sapote with you last week. If you can ship them to me together whenever available, I'd appreciate that. Thanks a lot!

I would like 10 plants, please. This may be a pineapple my husband can eat. He loves the flavor, but not the acidity. I am always trying to get him to try more fruits.
Thank you
Erica

Put me down for 5.
When they are that small are they hard to take care of and to get to fruiting size? Would it be like taking care of the chopped off top of a pineapple? I have no problem growing those.
If so then put me down for 10.   ;D

I was able to try this fruit at Frankies Nursery a few years ago. It has been my favorite pineapple from that day forward!

Shouldn't be hard to grow from Tissue culture!  Just a bit smaller at first, and fragile.

They will be easy!

Thanks for you interest
