Growing a Pineapple in Water From a Pineapple Top 1. Firmly twist the crown off. It will come off fairly easily. 2. Take the crown & pull off the lower leaves until u have about an inch+ of the core..... If you want fruit, you'll have to keep it in a sunny location. Otherwise, the pineapple will develop long slender leaves but will not fruit.
Grow pineapple plants. I have only had one so far but have five more plants I am waiting on. It took about two and a half years to get my first pineapple. It was small but really sweet.
