Gumbo -- 3ft pineapple is supposed to be about ready to fruit. Maybe you could try the bagging with a ripe apple or banana trick next month or so. I believe you want to induce before the temps start getting warm....
Standing by to take notes
This is why I love this place. I was happy with the plant the way it is, but if I can get a nice pineapple out of it-----all the better. Thanks for the heads up. I just so happen to keep apples and bananas on hand. My wife and her co-workers love the banana/nut bread I make with the over-ripe bananas.
It has gotten cooler here the past couple days but warmer temps are on the way later in the week. I'll give it a shot.
