Cayenne Pineapple (Ananas comosus)

The cayenne pineapple stands as a testament to nature’s ability to meld beauty with flavor. Its exterior is a captivating blend of golden hues, distinguished by large, pronounced eyes. Contrary to what its rugged skin might suggest, inside lies some of the sweetest, juiciest flesh of any pineapple variety. Each bite promises a burst of tropical sweetness, transporting the senses to an idyllic paradise. What sets the cayenne pineapple apart further are its smooth leaves, giving it an elegant silhouette, making this fruit not just a treat for the palate, but also a visual delight.

Cayenne pineapples are picked ripe and often more expensive fruit than red, pink or queen and very hard to get. The plant are small in comparison to the Queen or the Red pineapple when ready for fruiting.

We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at to discuss your specific requirements.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.
