Have any of you experienced success at growing a pineapple from a fresh pineapple that you have eaten? How do you do it, do you cut off some of the scales? do you cut off the top? do you put it in water to make a root? do you have to dry it out first? Can they grow in any climate inside? Will a pineapple started this way ever produce fruit?

I've heard of starting them with slicing off the top with a bit of the fruit, but I can't remember the rest of the procedure. I wonder if you don't put them down a little in some soil? Actualy, I don't care for fresh pineapple but absolutely love it canned. And Upsidedown Pineapple cake is so delicious! With blobs of whipped cream, of course.
