How Many Times Does a Pineapple Plant Fruit?
A pineapple plant fruits multiple times after it reaches its mature growth. In the second year, pineapple plants produce a flower stalk at the center. This stalk produces a large fruit and a host of plantlets. This first fruit is gently removed and new pineapple fruits grow in its place. When grown commercially, the pineapple plant is thrown out after the second harvest.
