It grows in compacted neglected soil such as unattended backyards, gravel driveways, sidewalk cracks and vacant lots. Pineapple weed is an annual herb that grows from June into November and when crushed gives off the fresh scent of pineapple.

You can increase this flavor by using more freshly picked or dried Pineapple Weed in less water.
