Elite Gold is the easiest and best pineapple for the home grower.

Elite has a perfect sugar to acid ratio. It taste like what your used to eating from the Supermarket. Your kids won't think that it has a "weird" flavor. Instead, you will likely find that it's one of the sweetest, most delicious pineapples you have ever eaten.

Some decorative pineapples make a tiny fruit. Elite's are large enough for your whole family to enjoy. Plus you can grow big fruit out of a compact pot.

Elite Gold is easy to grow. It's drought-tolerant... not picky about soil... and it likes sun or shade. They love containers. Just bring indoors when the temperatures get down to freezing. Put them in your garage or bring inside, where they will liven up your home.

Elite Gold produces a central rosette bearing long, narrow leaves with fine, sawtooth edges. The vibrant fruit grows from a sturdy stalk produced at the plant’s center, giving you a tropical feel. This distinctive plant will make a great conversation piece.

The Elite Gold is a perennial plant, so you can enjoy its colorful beauty year after year. Its stiff, deep-green leaves grow from 2 ½ to 4 feet in length and the plant’s rosette grows about 3 feet wide. From the heart of the plant arises a slender whorl of up to 200 purple-red blooms. As the flowers fade, they set berries which then combine to produce a luscious pineapple. The growth stages are fascinating to watch. Plant in groups of three, for a stunning effect.

Your pineapple plant arrives with a well developed root system. This can help you pick fruit 6 months earlier. Many nurseries sell tiny plants that are newly rooted. We grow ours longer so you don't have to wait. Plus you get a hardier plant that you won't have to baby.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Elite Gold Pineapple


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Elite Gold Pineapple.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Elite Gold Pineapple gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Elite Gold Pineapple again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

By: Cindy
I bought one of these in April 2012. This past winter I had a bloom that eventually turned into a pineapple Just 3 weeks ago, we picked the pineapple. It was small, but it was the most delicious pineapple I have ever tasted. There are now two new shoots coming off the original plant (that will turn into two new pineapples by next year). Also, we cut off the top of the one that we ate, put it in a glass of fresh water (changing the water every day) in a sunny window, and it has now sprouted roots and is ready to be planted. I absolutely recommend getting this pineapple. The wait time for the plant to mature is not bad at all, and the fruit is just delicious. It fits nicely into a 1 or 2 gallon container, and when we take it outside in the summer it attracts green tree frogs. I have bought several plants and trees from this company and have never been disappointed.
