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 ?  
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.
