Picking Pineapples

hobbess | Sep 5, 2010 04:06 AM

I've always had trouble picking ripe pineapples and there's so much conflicting information about how to select one. One of the things I keep on reading is to avoid 'dark and watery eyes' on a pineapple, but I have no idea what this means.

Can somebody explain what that means? I know what the eyes are, but I don't understand how they can be 'watery'. I kinda suspect that one original source said that, and subsequent books and articles copied that phrase even if they didn't understand it.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
