What do I look for in a pineapple?


Pineapples should be picked when ripe, as they do not ripen further afterwards. Look for a yellow or golden color in the skin and a body that is slightly soft when touched.

If selecting a cut or cored pineapple, look for flesh that is a deep golden yellow. The lighter yellow tends to be less ripe and hence, less sweet.

Actually, the best way that I have found to tell if a pineapple is ripe or not is by twisting the leaves at the core. The easier it is to twist, the more ripe the pineapple. The color can actually be misleading.
