One of our local readers invited the Hernando Sun to come by and check out his pineapple plants. Acy Holly, who is 89 of Brooksville has over 100 pineapple plants. He started growing them about 5 or 6 years ago. He said he found a pot with a plant in it one day, not knowing what type of plant it was, continued to water it. One day a pineapple started to grow, and he’s been growing them ever since. In the beginning his wife obtained a few tops that Publix saved for her, and over time the plants have doubled and tripled in number.
