The pineapple plant has a short, stocky stem with tough, waxy leaves. When creating its fruit, it usually produces up to 200 flowers. Once it flowers, the individual fruits of the flowers join together to create the fruit you know and love. After the first fruit is produced, side shoots (called ‘suckers’) are produced in the leaf axils of the main stem. These may be removed for propagation, or left to produce additional fruits on the original plant.
