"I think the peel itself is fine. It all depends on how much of the actual pineapple flesh is still attached to the peel. I had a couple of bad experiences with pineapple (not just the peel), so I now always pre-rot the stuff in a separate pile. It…"

"Yes, they loved the peals of the pineapple.  Never heard that it would hurt them!  They devoured them fast!!!! They say that worms love potatoe skins.....but they just sit there for weeks, thus no sign of love!!!"

"Really, pineapple, and they are ok with it?  I'd heard horror stories of pineapple sort of dissolving worms.  Maybe it's one of those things that is ok in small quantities, in confined regions of the bin."

"My worms seem to really love pineapple peels.  Been adding coffee grounds, tea bags and egg shells weekly, which helps keep bedding moist and worms happy.  What type of worm beds to you have?"

Hi Jacob, welcome to Vermicomposters, have fun on this friendly discussion forum! I enjoyed seeing your family, great photo!

Thank you for adding me as a friend, Jacob. I have been composting with worms about the same length of time as you. I am about to harvest my first batch of "black gold" for use in my container garden. I will put vermicompost in the hole where I will transplant my ornamental and vegetable plants. I am looking forward to watching how the plants respond to this soil treatment.
