Pineapple is grown on various types of soils including very poor soils. The flavour and quality of fruit grown on light soils is considered to be superior. However the sandy and loamy soils rich in humus and the laterite soils on the hill slopes in South India are suitable for its cultivation. The plant is particularly sensitive to soil being waterlogged. Therefore care should be taken to ensure proper drainage. It prefers soils with a pH range of 5.0-6.0.
