The Florida Special Pineapple is one of our favorite Pineapples in town! With a blue-green fruit rocking red accents and a sturdy deep-green base, these bromeliads take the cake on killer color combos.

Specifically bred by the Libby Fruit company in, you guessed it, Florida, these spineless, flavorful creations were made with taste quality and cold-hardiness in mind. Able to withstand mid 30F degrees, the Florida Special Pineapple’s claim to fame grants heat and drought tolerance as well, making it an easy-to-grow plant for sunshiney piña colada potential.
