How to Store

Store pineapple in refrigerator for 2 to 4 days. Cut pineapple lasts a couple of days if placed in a tightly covered container and stored in the refrigerator.

How to Select

Pineapples are picked when ripe and do not ripen after harvest. Select pineapples that are fresh looking. Contrary to popular belief, the ease with which leaves can be pulled out is not necessarily a sure sign of ripeness. Avoid fruit that is old looking, dry or with brown leaves. Avoid bruised fruit or those with soft spots.

Usage Tips

Twist off crown. Cut pineapple in half and then into quarters. Trim off ends and remove core from center of quarter. Using a thin paring knife remove shell from fruit. Cut into bite-size pieces.

For pineapple "boats" leave on the crown and both ends on the pineapple. Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise. Use a thin paring knife to cut the fruit out of the boats. The boats can be filled with fruit salad, main dish salad or ice cream.
