Does anyone know where a pineapple seed is located?
Pineapples are native to South America. About the only place you will find a pineapple with viable seeds is in South America on a naturally growing pineapple plant. A pineapple develops from multiple flowers. There are many thick, hard floral bracts or leaf-like petals on the outside of a pineapple. If you did find a pineapple with seeds, it would contain one seed for each flower that produced the pineapple. It is difficult to find seeds in commercially grown pineapples. Commercial pineapples have been selected for their vestigial seeds (the same is true for bananas). Commercial pineapples are propagated by planting a vegetative part of the plant (the stalk, the tufts at the top of the fruit or the tufts at the bottom of the fruit). They are not grown from seeds.
