You don’t have to live on a lot of land — or in the tropics — to harvest sweet, delicious pineapple all year long. It’s easy to grow this tropical fruit in small spaces. Simply purchase a fresh pineapple — remember to search for a coupon! — and cut off its crown, leaving just a little fruit at the top.

Soak the crown in water for a day and then plant it in a plastic, gallon-sized container. Place the container in a warm, sunny spot (such as a window or balcony) and wait for your tasty, tropical fruit to grow. If you opt to put your container outdoors, be sure to bring it in on chilly nights.
