Sugarloaf Pineapple

The sugarloaf pineapple I got in a plant swap from a reader about 18 months ago has pretty much stayed the same, only increasing in size.

He said it would take about 18 months before it started bearing fruit. So imagine my eagerness when I saw this tiny shoot.

I thought for sure I'd get a pineapple to eat any day now. Only I realized... the fruit grows out from the middle of the plant. So still no pineapple yet for me. :(
