Pineapples have exceptional juiciness and a vibrant tropical flavor that
balances the tastes of sweet and tart.
Look for pineapples that are heavy for their size. Pineapples should be free of soft spots, bruises and
darkened "eyes," all of which may indicate that it is past its prime.
Pineapple stops ripening
as soon as it is picked, so choose fruit with a fragrant sweet smell at the stem end.
Avoid pineapple that smells musty, sour or fermented.
Low production/exposure to ethylene may result in slightly faster
greening without influencing internal quality.
Watch pineapples closely to ensure that they do not spoil. Pineapple can be left at room
temperature for one or two days before serving. After two days, you should wrap it in a plastic
bag and refrigerate it for a maximum of 3-5 days.
