I only have 5 forming so far. That might be it for me. I love that pineapples don't mind crowding.

Yup, my plastic mulch paper is from the pineapple company that went belly up 15 years ago, so it is marked with where to plant. I figure if it worked for them it should work for me.

Works quite well for you, you're going to have quite a bounty. How many plants do you think you have?

Guessing 200+ plants, maybe 2/3 have fruit.

We originally started with about 60 crowns from a restaurant down the road, then when those fruited we took the crowns and slips to make the big 200 plant patch.

The land we built on used to be pineapple land 30 or 40 years ago, the downside is there is a ton of rusty farm equipment that we keep shoving around the property until we can come up with a few grand to have it hauled.
