When choosing a pineapple, select one that is plump with a bright green crown and a strong sweet aroma at the stem end.
Pineapples do not continue to ripen or become sweeter after harvested.
If the aroma of the pineapple is not strong, allow it to stand at room temperature for 2 or 3 days until it softens slightly and its aroma increases.
Refrigerate ripe pineapple for 3 to 5 days.
Cut pineapple can be stored in an airtight plastic container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
Cut pineapple may be frozen for future use in blender drinks.
There are 3 major varieties of pineapples: cayenne, red Spanish, and sugar loaf.
