Hi academic2, I know the pineapple plant could only bear a single fruit. It is just similar to the banana plant that it will not bear another fruit again. Of course the plant after the fruit has been harvested will be left to die after sometime. But normally the old plant will be removed straight away to avoid further nutrients being consumed from the soil.
