A nearby gardener will watch over your growing pineapple plant at the cost of 10 watermelons.
To plant it, you must use it with a plant pot while having a Gardening trowel in inventory, then water it with a watering can, then wait for it to become a pineapple sapling. Transfer the pineapple sapling to the patch. It takes 960 minutes (roughly 16 hours) to finish growing, although it can sometimes take up to 30 hours. A standard 6 pineapples grow from the plant. You can visually see each of the 6 pineapples being taken from the stock as it is harvested.
Pineapple seeds are a popular item to trade on the Grand Exchange, because of their ever-varying price range. They can be obtained by looting Magpie implings, Bird's nests, from the Vinesweeper minigame for 10,000 point, or as a fairly common reward (1 seed) from the Squeal of Fortune, where it could be converted to 1000 coins during the Double Cash period, implying that normally they could be converted to 500 coins, which is 4,673 less than selling them on the Grand Exchange.
