The pineapple is a summer crop in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. It is the most profitable crop to plant during summer, although the seeds are very expensive. If you saved up gold during spring, buy pineapple seeds immediately and plant them in the early days of summer, since they take almost the whole season to grow.
Where to buy Seeds: Won’s Shop at the Inn
Days to Grow: 20 days
Renewable Crop: Yes, 6 days to regrow
Important Note: Each bag of seeds has 9 seeds that will fill a 3×3 square of tilled soil when planted. If you plant any seed on untilled soil, it will not grow and you will lose it forever.
Profit Using 3×3 and Fat-C Method
For renewable crops, we will calculate the profit per bag per day with the formula (Maximum Profit per Season/30 days), assuming you started planting on the first day of the season.

The Fat-C Method
This planting method involves tilling a 3×3 square of soil and leaving one square on the edge untilled, planting just 8 crops instead of 9. This is the most efficient method of planting crops during the early stages of the game since the center crop is inaccessible without an upgraded watering can.
Pineapples are primarily used in making juices. You can also use it in desserts like cakes and ice cream.
As Main Ingredient: Fruit Juice, Fruit Latte, Mixed Juice, Mixed Latte
As Optional Ingredient: Cake, Chocolate Cake, Ice Cream, Pizza, Relaxation Tea, Salad, Sandwich, Stew, Tempura
Most people in the game will react positively when receiving pineapples. Instead of giving the crop directly as a present, it is better to first create a recipe using it.
