Queen Pineapple (Ananas comosus) 

Queen pineapples are dark-yellow with a small core. The Queen pineapple has a pleasant aroma and flavour, but does not can well. Instead, they're better eaten fresh. Queen pineapples are more tolerant of diseases and cold temperatures than other types of pineapple.  

Plant Care Instructions Doc

Plant Care 

Light

Full sun or part shade. Keep them outdoors under shelter in extreme heat conditions.

Water

 

Does not need regular watering. It’s important to have a good drainage. More regular watering during summer.

Soil

It grows in all soil types, preferably in light and well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. pH 4.5-7 is ideal.

Fertiliser

Take up a lot of their nutrition through their leaves, and the first few months after planting they rely only on their leaves.  Use diluted liquid fertilisers like fish emulsion or seaweed extract onto the pineapple plant and the surrounding soil. Or use pelleted chicken manure - sprinkle it on the soil very close to the base of the pineapple plant and make sure a bit falls into the bottom leaves.

Wind

Wind tolerant when small; keep it partly covered from strong wind.

Frost

Need protection from frost.

Fruiting

From crown - up to 24 month. From suckers up to 18 months. From slips within a year.

Very happy with plant although thought may have come with more info on how to care for it!
While I have been on website I’m still a little unsure of care of plant. Happy with plant and service though
