When removed, the crown of the pineapple fruit contains small roots.
If it's planted into the ground (or a pot), a new fruit-producing plant will grow.
Additionally, the plant's "suckers" (side shoots that grow in between the leaves of the main stem) and slips (tiny plant-lets that grow out from the base of the pineapple fruit) can produce
new plants when replanted.
Unlike most fruits, pineapples are not grown from seeds. Common commercial varieties of pineapples are "self-incompatible," meaning that the plants' pollen cannot fertilize members of the same variety. So unless different varieties are grown next to one another and flower simultaneously, the plant will produce a seedless fruit that develops without fertilization.
The pineapple fruit grows out of the top of the central stem. The fruit is actually the result of dozens of individual fruit-producing flowers that have fused into a single fruit, which is capped with a "crown" sporting numerous short leaves.
