You should cut the Pineapple from the plant with a sharp knife close to the base of the growing site. Leave about 1 inch at the base of the Pineapple as you cut.

Try to avoid damaging the plant during harvest.

Check the main plant for more small plants or ratoons as these will develop into Pineapples.
