How to Choose Ripe Pineapple?
The things you should pay attention to when choosing a pineapple are its color, smell and outer peel.
- Check the Color. Unripe pineapple is a gray-green color. The outside becomes bright green/yellow as it is ripped. When choosing a pineapple, make sure it is yellow first.
- Look at the Smell. Ripe pineapple has a sweet, fruity, tropical scent. Smell the pineapple at its base. If you can't smell anything, it's not fully ripe.
- Check Hardness. Ripe pineapple is softer than unripe pineapple. Squeeze the pineapple a little. If it has a slightly soft texture, it is ripe.
