Tips: Pineapples will not ripen after they are picked. Choose a heavy fruit with a lightly sweet scent. Avoid those with heavy scents, as they are overripe. Choose pineapples that have some yellow to the skin. To cut: cut off the top and level the bottom. With a sharp knife, cut away the skin and the eyes. Remove the hard core and cut pineapple into chunks.
