In my quest to make a comparison between ratoon and regular pineapple, I think the photo shows it clearly that the ratoon fruit is only about half the size of a normal pineapple. However, it also takes half the time to produce a fruit – about a year, versus two or more years for a regular pineapple. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably repeat it many times – I don’t know how the commercial growers do it! You’ve got to be supremely patient to grow these fruits!
