5 Tips to Pick the Perfect Pineapple

1. Check the Color:

The color of pineapple varies from greenish yellow to red or orange. Greenish yellow is considered the most common color.

However, if you are looking for a very dark shade of purple, then you might want to look elsewhere because there aren’t many varieties with such deep colors available today.

2. Give it a Squeeze:

Pineapples have long been known to contain high levels of lycopene, which gives them their bright orange color. When squeezed, the juice releases its natural flavor and aroma into your mouth.

If you don’t like the taste of pineapple juice, then try adding some ice cubes to make it even better!

3. Smell it:

If you’re looking for a piney scent, then you’ll want to pick up a few slices of pineapple. Try using fresh pineapple instead of canned.

Fresh pineapple will give you the best results since it’s fresher and contains less sugar than canned. You can also use grapefruit juice instead of lemon or lime juice. (Note: Grapefruit does not contain enough vitamin C to help prevent cancer.) Also, try making your own pineapple salsa!

4. Assees the Weight:

Pineapples are very heavy fruits. If you can’t hold it with just one hand, then that might be a sign that the fruit is too ripe and is starting to rot.

Try looking for pineapples that have lighter weights and avoid those that are very heavy.
