Q.Pineapple Fruit On The Mother Stalk Won’t Turn Yellow. It’s Been Several Months Since It’s Stopped Growing

Zone Porter Ranch, Ca 91326 USA | Anonymous added on October 27, 2021 | Answered

I have a pineapple from a commercially grown topper. It’s 2 years old and we got our first mini pineapple about May this year it stopped growing about 3months ago and I keep waiting for it to turn yellow but the buggers is persistently deep emerald green. How do I convince it to ripen the dang fruit? I water once every couple days as I live in a hot &dry area.

My research says the fruit doesn't necessarily have to turn yellow to be ripe. But it is important that it be ripe. Unripe pineapple is poisonous.
