The pineapple industry is basically monopolized by the Dole company and they grow one or two hybridized varieties mostly in Hawaii. Even though you can plant and grow new pineapple plants from the tops of fruit you buy from the store, you’ll never get a cool new variety that way, just the basic Dole variety...

This variety is called Elite Gold and its super sweet, unlike anything you have had from the grocery store. Its golden yellow on the inside and out and like other pineapple varieties it grows easily, likes poor sandy soils (which we have in abundance here) and loves our climate. The key to a delicious pineapple is letting it ripen on the plant for as long as possible (be careful leaving it too long, as Raccoons and squirrels love eating them).
