About Ananas bracteatus striatus

The cultivar Tricolor (also known as Striatus ) has rosettes of erect, sword-shaped, olive-green leaves with creamy margins and red spines. The rosettes produce offsets at the base and between the leaves.

When mature (about 18 months after propagation), the central rosette gives rise to a tall stout stem bearing an oval cluster of lavender flowers with large prickly red bracts. A plume of stiff leaves tops the cluster. Pulpy greenish-brown fruit-lets follow the blooms, merging to form a succulent, edible cone-shaped fruit that is somewhat smaller than a commercial pineapple.
