This blog purpose is to share my success and failures in gardening in a tropic. I have no particular liking to any plant/ flower but once it caught my attention there is no other way for me but to have it. Since I’ve all the local plant that i fancy, now i cast my eyes far away, temperate flower/plant. Hence the existence of My Experimental Garden Blog. Hope you enjoy my blog.

Today one of my pineapples is ripe for picking. This is the second pineapple
that i harvest this week. As usual i almost cut the pineapple before i
remember that i have to take the photo for my blog! This is Josephine cultivar
so the fruit is not big but what it lacks in size it makes up by early fruiting.
For next 2 months i think I’ll have pineapple every week. Even though the
entire pineapple seedlings were planted at the same time, Josephine is the
first to fruit and there are cultivars which just bear fruit which translate to
a long season of pineapple. In the tropic pineapples are available year round,
but rarely we can eat sweet pineapple because it was harvest too early for
cooking purposes or to be eaten as fruit salad. That is the reason why i plant
pineapple in pots. Freshly
picked ripe pineapple is sweet and crunchy. Um! Yummy :-)
