Growing Pineapple

I live in SW Florida and have had a dozen or so pineapple plants for 4-5 yrs. This year, one of the plants has a solid chute growing out of the core, which is about 16" long now. I have never seen this before. Does anyone have an answer what this is, and what, if anything causes it, or what to do about it? Thanks.

I also live in Florida and love growing pineapples - so easy! I have not seen anything like you are describing but I think your county extension office/agriculture agent could give you an answer if you contact them but they may want to see a photo of your plant.
I have links to a couple of really good sites that show how easy it is to grow pineapples in almost any climate/zone:

According to WikiHow, you may have a flower coming?

Look for flowers. It can take several years, but eventually a red cone should appear from the center of the leaves, followed by blue flowers and eventually a fruit. It takes about six months for the fruit to fully develop. The pineapple will grow from the flower, above ground, in the center of the plant.
