Pineapple growing IMG 6490 - The plant that produces this delicious tropical fruit is a member of the Bromeliad family. Pineapples, with their leaves hemmed with sharp spines, are grown commercially on large plantations in Queensland, and small quantities are often grown by home gardeners. The leafy top of the fruit can be removed and planted to produce a new plant, and although it can take up to two years for a pineapple to develop, the reward for a little patience is a sweet and juicy feast of one of the world's most popular fruits.
