Pineapples - temperature range tolerated

13 years ago

I've got a couple of baby pineapple plants growing that I started from pineapple tops (cut off of the fruit).

What is the temperature range these will take? (Specifically, the minimum temperature?)

Obviously they won't take the winters around here.

I'm wondering if they just need to be kept above freezing (in which case they could be in a greenhouse, once I get one), or if they need to be kept above some higher minimum level (e.g. 50 F), in which case they would need to overwinter in a pot in the house.

Any insight into this?
