Picking the right brand is the key to picking the best pineapple because different companies grow very different varieties and use various growing methods that greatly affect flavour and quality.

  • Pineapples should be mature “well developed” with rounded shoulders and developed “eyes” that have filled out (flat and not too pointy).
  • The fruit shell should be bright yellow/gold colour and can have some green colouring, but the shell should not be all green or brown and dried out.
  • The crown (top) can range in colour from green to reddish-green in colour and should also have fresh looking appearance.
  • Pineapples may look tough, but they can easily be bruised when not handled properly. Pick up the pineapples and make sure they are not bruised, leaking, spongy, mushy, or decaying.
  • And do the sniff test: Smell the stem end. You’re looking for a sweet, fresh pineapple smell. Skip pineapples with fermented or soured odours.
