Add a touch of much-needed tropical warmth to your home with this small Pineapple plant.
Part of the Bromeliad plant family native to Tropical America it has swordlike spiny green leaves, held in a dense rosette, with the fruit held in the centre on a sturdy stalk.
The Ananas comosus produces a single ornamental fruit at the centre of its delicately coloured foliage. When the pineapple drops off, it's unlikely to produce a new one, but you should get pups in the soil which you can re-pot and grow into whole new plants.
Hardiness: Tender (indoors only) Prefers temperatures above 15'c.
