Dole organic pineapples are always harvested ripe. They don't continue to ripen after picking because they have already reached their full sweetness. However, they may still have a green skin. Choose pineapples that look fresh, have green leaves and are slightly soft to the touch. This is the best way to pick the perfect pineapple!
Tip: Pineapples ripen from the bottom up. Therefore, the sugar content is higher on the ground than directly below the crown. Taste different parts of the flesh. You will taste the difference.
Pineapples do not ripen after harvest. Dole organic pineapples are picked ripe and transported in refrigerated containers that keep the fruit at a constant temperature of 7.5°C.
You can keep Dole organic pineapples in the fridge for 2 - 4 days; only a couple of days if already sliced.
Natural, fresh pineapple is sensational! Just twist off the crown, cut the pineapple in half and then into quarters. Trim off ends and remove the core. Using a thin knife, cut the shell from the fruit. Slice into bite-size pieces.
You can add pineapple to a fruit salad, yoghurt or ice cream. It also goes well with sweet-and-sour dishes and meats such as pork and poultry.
