Not only Decorative, but Delicious!

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.

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

Question and concern more than review.
I just received and planted my plant 3 days ago in a large pot. The leaves are long and sturdy but it look like they are gaining some bluish spots. I have not done anything other than what the directions indicated. Are these bluish spots normal? The leaves look a little dusty as well. not vibrant green like he photo. Any advice?

Trying this as a patio plant in Michigan
I plan on up-potting this into a 5 gallon bucket from the container it was shipped in. So far in the nice and warm summer we've had in michigan it has taken off with some new growth. However, some of the nights have been dropping below 65 degrees, so it is stressing the plant as expected. So its been living in a little flower popup greenhouse.

I honestly do not even care if this ever fruits. It is a cool plant to have in zone 5b.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

Nice tree for my pool area and my son loves them!
Patrick F on Aug 22, 2016
Information on the web says these plants don't get terribly large, and I want to be able to bring them indoors, if needed.
Wesley L on Aug 7, 2016
I grow indoors in a bedroom under full spectrum LED grow lights, an experiment/hobby starting this year. I look for berry bushes and trees that are dwarf size, are smaller in height and girth and/or can be pruned to size. I have two Clementine trees from fast growing. They are doing very well. I have two Top Hat Blueberry bushes, as well as, Everberry Strawberries, from a local nursery. They are doing very well. I also mixed in some veggies. Now, bananas, pineapple and figs from fast growing!!!!

when are they ripe?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: Not sure, I've had mine for one year, the plant is very healthy but no pineapple yet. I think they had mentioned it could take 2 years before it is established enough to bloom.

Thanks,
Dave
