The White Pineapple

I am so excited for our white pineapple to ripen. These are the most delicious pineapples ever!  They are sweet with no tartness to them at all. The flesh is very lightly colored. This one happened to be planted when we moved here and was really small for a long time. All the sudden the leaves started getting bigger and soon it was 4' tall.  I kept anxiously awaiting for it to bloom, which it finally did a couple of months ago.  Now it is halfway there, it is going to be a huge one.  I will take pictures again when we harvest it and I will show you what the inside looks like.  Here are pictures of its progress.
