Are you looking for something interesting to try as a houseplant? You might consider a pineapple. Not only will this make a fairly large, attractive plant, but if you’re fortunate, you might even get a pineapple to eat.
Pineapples are native to South America, and were quickly found by early European explorers. Columbus noted them as early as 1493.
