Wanna know how to grow a pineapple by yourself?

Pineapple Field

I can remember as if it was yesterday, the feeling of astonishment and amusement, standing in front of this pineapple field in Australia years ago, realizing … that these pineapples or not growing on a tree.

Pineapples are aggregate fruits, formed by a cluster of 100-200 flowers fusing together as the fruit.
