How to Pick Pineapples

Not sure how to pick pineapples that are ready to eat?
Pineapples are a wonderful addition to any menu. Understanding which of the many pineapples you see on display in a grocery store is the right one can be a little tricky. These tips may help.
After spotting a pineapple you think is ready for purchase, pick it up.

Look at the pineapple for color. Do you see mostly green, or has it turned the shade of yellow you know it should be? If you don't want to eat the pineapple within a day or two, it will be okay to buy one that is a little green. If you want one that is ready to eat, look for more yellow than green.
After checking the color of the pineapple, attempt to pull one of the center leaves straight up and out of the pineapple. If it removes easily, and the pineapple is filling in with yellow on the exterior, it is probably ready for purchase.

Does it offer a faint pineapple odor? If you have at least 2 out of 3 of these steps checked, the pineapple is probably ready for purchase.
