It was not RIPE,
unripe pineapples have killed many ;)
Kidding about the death rates
So how do you tell when a pine apple is ripe (except for when it doesn't burn your tongue, that is)?
You can tell a pineapple is ripe by the color (it should start to look yellow/orangish), the scent, and if you pull on a leaf from the center it should pull out easily.
I have this problem too i have to make sure pineapple is very ripe when i eat it. The burning feeling can also be due to how acidic it is.
Oh ok. The pine apple I ate was mostly green :/
Honestly, I would youtube there are lots of good videos on how to tell, I go by sight smell, I like them pretty golden and they are ridiculously sweet
heres some visuals as pictures are often better
unfortunately lots of pineapples are picked way before they can ripen properly so lots of serious fruit heads don't buy them unless they have a good source.
Thank you :)
Here is the solution:
Oh, thank you. I will definetely try this before I eat a pineapple again! :)
Thank you :) This was very informative :)
If you don't live where they are being grown or have them flown directly to you from a known source, then it's very unlikely you will find a ripe one and they don't ripen once picked. If a fruit burns your tongue then it will burn your insides, do not eat! The only exception I know of is the fig, the skin will burn your lips unless you touch the inside to your lips before the skin touches it.
Oh darn. I am guessing it can be really hard to get ripe pineapples in Norway, then. The ones I have seen so far have been mostly green :/
