How to Choose a Pineapple
Often, consumers don’t know what to look for when choosing a fresh pineapple. Here are some tips on how to select a perfect pineapple:
Color: Look for a golden color all the way around the fruit, especially near the base. It is still good and ripe if it has green on the upper portion. Stay away from a dark brown color as this means the fruit is overripe.
Scent: The bottom of the pineapple should have a sweet, fresh scent. If the aroma is too subtle, the pineapple is not ripe enough.
Crown: If the leaves at the crown look dried, this could mean the pineapple is overripe. Make sure the leaves look fresh.
How to Cut a Pineapple

Sure, nothing beats the juicy, delicious fruit, but carving through the tough-looking armor of the exterior can appear to be a daunting task. However, cutting a pineapple is quite simple. All you need is a sharp knife and a cutting board.
1. Place the pineapple on its side and cut off the stalk
2. Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple
3. Stand the pineapple up and slice the skin off
4. Continue cutting all around the pineapple until all the skin is removed
5. Use the end of a potato peeler to remove any divots
6. Place the pineapple on its side and cut into rings
7. Cut the core out of each slice
