I'm thinking you want pineapple seed and not seed of an apple named pine. Do a google with:
pineapple seed
and there's lots of great info out there.

You will likely have a hard time finding pineapple seeds, and most of the varieties that you find in the store are seedless because they are much better for eating this way. If you want to start a pineapple plant, get yourself a pineapple, cut off the top (try to cut off much of the actual fruit, but don't cut the leaves at all), stick it in some well draining soil, maybe mix a little sand in, and keep the soil damp but not too wet for about a month or so and it will take root. That way you can enjoy the rest of the pineapple too.

You will want to cut almost all of the core off too (leave maybe 1/4 inch). Then stick it down an inch or two in the soil (make sure it drains well. sand is really helpful for these plans). Then just water and give it time.

I found these about growing a pineapple as a houseplant.

Pineapples

Can you plant the pineapples anytime of year if they're going to be indoors? What kind of sunlight do they need?

You should be able to plant them any time when pineapples are in season and you have access to the tops. They like lots of light, so by a warm sunny window is ideal for them.

I've ordered some seed catalogs, and I think the first thing that I'll try will be the pineapple. That sounds easy enough. By the way, my kids are so excited about our garden! This morning my 5 year old suggested we plant a hotdog tree. Pretty clever little guy!
