Red Pineapple / Ananas comosus – Flora of Goa: Photographed this Ananas comosus in Goa, in a garden, back in Dec 2008.
I dunno if it’s different from common
Ananas or it’s same, just red in colour.


Beautiful pics and for me they are special as I am seeing the flowers for the first time. Thanks a lot.


Yes I have also never seen the flowers.
Good pictures indeed.


Is it the same ananas that we eat?


I guess I got lucky to see those Pineapples flowers.
…, I searched and found that this is Ananas bracteatus and not Ananas comosus (as I wrote earlier)
and It originated from Brazil. Also dat d ripe fruit is edible, but it is smaller and less fleshy than common pineapples
U can see more pics I found on this blog –

Ananas bracteatus & Ananas comosus


Appears to be Ananas comosus only as per images herein. Ananassa sativa (Schult. & Schult.f.) Lindl. ex Beer is a synonym of Ananas comosus (L.) Merr.


Sorry. It should be Ananas bracteatus (Lindl.) Schult. & Schult.f. as per images herein.

Ananas ¿ bracteatus ?  
Dear friends,
Glancing through eFI, the posted plant looks like Ananas bracteatus; please validate.  

I hope you have already checked comparative images at 

Yes … I noticed some posts where you have suggested Ananas bracteatus. Now I am not sure why I was not confident while labelling the pictures.

I am going with Ananas bracteatus. Thank you very much.


Closest I can go is Ananas bracteatus (Lindl.) Schult. & Schult.f. as per comparative images at Ananas
But I did not see serrated leaves here compared to those in efi site.
Are such variations there in this species ?

May I request you to check good descriptions available on net in this regard.

…, I will do my best.
