    Pull one of the leaves at the top and if it comes out without too much pressure, the pineapple is ripe

    You will know it by smelling the pineapple.
    When you smell the fragrance of the fruit.
    That means is ripe and ready to peel.
    When it’s not there is no smell at all.

    Be alert for two key elements of a ripe pineapple: freshness and deterioration. You are looking for a fresh pineapple, not a rotting one. The stem is the area of the pineapple that feeds sugar to the fruit. It is from here that the pineapple changes color.

    Look at the pineapple. It should reflect a golden yellow color. The minimum area for this should be on the eyes at the base of the fruit. Never purchase a pineapple that is fully green as it will not ripen well. The higher the color rises up the pineapple, the sweeter it will be. The pineapples in the photo above indicate good coloring.
    Smell the pineapple. If it smells sweet, then it’s ready. If it has no scent, it’s not ripe. If it smells fermented, it’s over ripe!
    Touch the pineapple gently. It should be firm to a gentle press and only yield slightly.
    Beware the myth! It is an urban myth that a pineapple is ripe when a leaf can be removed from the crown easily. It is proof of nothing in terms of ripeness.
    Beware the deteriorating pineapple. A deteriorating pineapple will be a reddish, bronze color or it may even be green. It will smell as if it is fermenting, like vinegar. It will also be mushy when pushed gently and it will likely have wrinkled skin. Other clear indications include mold, oozing sticky juices, cracks in the skin and leaves turning brown and dropping off.
