Pseudoananas Bromeliad Plant Species
Author: adminNo Comments
Pseudoananas (soo-do-a-nay’nus) – Belonging to the Bromelioideae subfamily; this is a monotypic genus and its species, Pseudoananas sagenarius, is commonly called the false pineapple.
It is very similar to the genus Ananas but is more robust and generally larger. The flattened, succulent inflorescence protrudes above the foliage about 30 cm and is 15-20 cm long, bearing pink bracts and lavender flowers. The fruit is edible and quite tasty, but unlike the genus Ananas, is not grown commercially. A worthwhile plant if you have space.
