A couple of years ago, I stuck the crown (top) that we cut from a fresh pineapple into a pot.  I just hoped that the plant would grow.  It did -- and it has made a pineapple!

Close-up of the pineapple.  Each lobe on the pineapple was a flower, starting with the purple flowers at the very bottom.  The flowers have worked their way to the top.

Unfortunately, a rat decided that the pineapple was ready to cut before we did, and left a golfball-sized hole in it. We cut the fruit and cleaned around the hole. The pineapple fruit turned out to be the best pineapple that we have ever tasted! It was sweeter and juicier than any fresh pineapple from the grocery.  After the pineapple fruit was cut, the plant is putting out a "pup".

A new fruit appears. This pineapple has really flourished in the greenhouse over the winter. It is the plant shown here.
