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.
