How to Select a Good Pineapple

Share on social media
  • Buy it in peak season, from March through July, ideally a day before you want to use it.
  • Buy it ripe and sweet: more yellow than green in color, with a mild pineapple aroma at the base.
  • Look for a surface that is firm and gently yielding to the touch and single-tuft crowns that are not less than four inches (no more than twice the length of the fruit itself).
  • Avoid pineapples with these marks of deterioration: a wrinkled skin, gumminess or softness, fermented aroma, leakage, mold, cracks, or brown, withered leaves.
