The fruit originating from the mainland of Brazil has a unique characteristic that has long, pointed leaves and scaly fruit skin. In Indonesia, pineapple was originally known as a garden plant, but as community knowledge developed, pineapple plants have now been cultivated and used as processed ingredients of various foods such as chips, jams, ingredients for making salad, a mixture of cocktails or ice to be eaten directly.
In addition to the variety of pineapple-based processed creations, these pineapple fruits also have a variety of benefits. Pineapple has a high content of vitamin C, in addition there is also the content of the enzyme bromelain which serves to soften the meat and facilitate the process of digestion and absorption of food in the body. In addition, pineapple is also believed to be effective in treating various diseases such as flu, hemorrhoids, nausea, urinary tract disorders, skin diseases to anemia. These various benefits and good economic value make pineapple cultivation very profitable.
How to Cultivate Pineapple Fruit
Pineapple is one of the plants that can grow in dry and wet climates with high and low rainfall even if pineapple cultivation does not experience obstacles, meaning that it is related to land and weather problems. Pineapple can flourish at temperatures between 23-32 ° C with sunlight that ranges from 33-71%. Even so, pineapple cultivation cannot be carried out anywhere, because planting land must have a Ph between 4.5-5.5 or not less because it will disrupt plant growth. In addition, the best land for pineapple cultivation also tends to be loose soil types, sandy clay soils and contains a lot of nutrients. In addition, during the planting period, the drainage system is also one of the determining factors for the success of pineapple cultivation. How to complete planting these pineapple fruits?
How to plant pineapple is not difficult, if you know the characteristics of plants and guidelines for pineapple cultivation, and the following steps to plant good and true pineapple:
• Nurseries
Nurseries are one of the main factors that influence the success of pineapple cultivation. Nurseries must be taken from plants that are healthy and free of various kinds of pests and diseases which among them have characteristics of thick and full leaves and have fresh colors. This nursery process can be done in two ways, namely generative and vegetative. But to speed up the fertilization process, vegetative fertilization will be faster and more profitable, including using stem buds or by means of stem text.
 Nurseries with stem buds
For the process of vegetative pineapple nursery with stem buds the first thing you have to do is to choose a parent plant that is fruiting or has been harvested, select stem shoots measuring 30-35 cm in size. After finding a good bud, cut the part of the leaf close to the base of the tree to reduce evaporation and facilitate the removal of seedlings. Then do the seeding using a poly bag and place it in the shade. And after the plant seeds begin to grow, you can move them to the land provided.
 Nurseries with stem cuttings
For stem cuttings, you can cut the pineapple stem which has been harvested 2.5 cm long. After that, cut the stem pieces into 4 equal lengths, and make sure each part has buds. Before planting seedlings cuttings first with media containing a mixture of sand and manure. Plant stem cuttings in seedling media until 3-5 months of age or after measuring 25-35 cm and during the seeding process do regular watering.
• Land preparation
Land preparation can be done at the beginning of the rainy season together with the seeding process. This is so that the seeding and nursery process can be completed simultaneously. The land preparation process is carried out by way of blending, reversing the position of the soil, and making air circulation to the soil by hoeing or hijacking. Preparation of planting land is done by preparing the following two things:
 Beds
The formation of these beds was chosen to facilitate the drainage system. These beds are made together with the land processing process, and are made with a width of about 80-120 cm, 30-40 cm high and the distance between each bed ranges from 90-150 cm.
 liming
The condition for growing pineapple plants is to have a soil pH between 4.5-5.5. And to balance soil pH levels the steps that can be taken is to do calcification. The calcification process is carried out using Calcit, Zeagro, Dolomite and other agricultural lime ingredients at doses adjusted to
