One of the approaches to attain better yield especially in newly developed fruit crop varieties is through planting density optimization. Hence, this study was conceptualized to 1) determine the effects of varying planting densities on the vegetative growth of ‘Sensuous pineapple, 2) evaluate the effects of planting density on the fruit mass and yield of ‘Sensuous pineapple and 3) compare the fruit chemical properties of ‘Sensuous pineapple at varying planting densities. Treatments include 45,000, 55,000, 65,000 and 75,000 planting density hectare-1, respectively. The experiment was laid-out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with four replications.
