I planted a pineapple bush against a wall last summer, it was 3.5 ft tall at the time. It is now 7.5ft with only the main branch and a couple of offshoot branches which are very thin. - it had these when i bought it.
I fed it in the summer but it doesnt seem to be bushing out at all, it just gets taller and stringier.
