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 tastes better than any pineapple you've had from the Supermarket. You will likely find that it's one of the sweetest, most delicious pineapples you have ever eaten. While 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 container.

Simple, Not Finicky
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. They add a refreshing tropical feel and will liven up your home during the winter months. Plus, it's self-fertile, though adding another Elite Gold means bigger harvests.

Interesting Appearance
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. It 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.

Order Now
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.

    Just ate the pineapple and sooooo good!

    Purchased June 2019 and we picked the ripe fruit today and it tasted AMAZING! It started to grow the pineapple this past March, we live in zone 10b and we had this plant in partial shade/partial sun. It has given us 4 pups that we have also planted in our yard, and we should have all of them ripen at the end of next year. These fruit are about 6 inches long by 4 inches wide and super sweet!
