Picking a Ripe Pineapple

Pineapple does not ripe up after it is picked, so it is imperative that you buy one that is ripe.

Here's what you need to look for if you want to get a good pineapple:

The outside should be mostly yellow. The eyes should be large, plump, symmetrical and the same size over the entire pineapple. The leaves should be green. The leaves should pull easily away from the body of the pineapple. The bottom of the pineapple should smell like sweet pineapple.

Avoid pineapple that have: brown leaves, mushy spots, or mold on the bottom.
