Learning how to cut a pineapple can be very simple with our step-by-step video tutorial. The golden juicy sweet flesh can be sliced for a quick refrigerator snack that your family will absolutely love.

The first step is learning how to pick a super ripe pineapple. The peak season for getting the best bang for your buck in choosing a pineapple is  from March to July


The next step is where some of your elementary schooling comes in. Yes, and you didn’t think learning your 5 senses would come in handy in life.  The nose can be your best friend in identifying whether a pineapple is ripe.   O.K, this is where you will have to throw shyness out of the window.  Don’t worry about people staring.  If they are staring, they are trying to find out your knowledge of how to pick the best pineapple.

Pick up the pineapple, flip it over to the bottom and smell the bottom of the fruit for a sweet, but definitely not a fermented aroma. If the smell has a greenery/grassy smell then it’s not very ripe yet.


The outer part of the skin and leaves should have a slight shine.  The  skin and leaves should not look dull. 


The skin should feel slightly firm but when you press it, it should give a little.  Next, pick one of the leaves from the middle section of the pineapple and if it comes out easily, the pineapple is ripe and ready to eat.

Once you get home with your pineapple, refrigerate it for a few hours, but make sure you turn the pineapple upside down while it’s stored in the refrigerator.  Storing the pineapple upside down will allow all of the juices for flow into the meat of the pineapple.  The pineapple will be much sweeter and juicier.

So, you see, picking and Cutting a Pineapple may seem a bit difficult, but it’s not.
