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 Florida Special and its a bit of an heirloom amongst Florida fruit growers. and its a spineless plant, which if you've ever tangled with a spiny plant while weeding, you'll know is a big plus. This variety can withstand cold temperatures to just above freezing so if you live somewhere chillier this is a great option for you.
