Pineapple ripeness test

Allan Evans | Apr 6, 2001 01:27 PM

Usually one checks for the enticing aroma, for brown color and few traces of immature green, no overly soft parts. . . but yesterday my wife asked the grocer if a certain one was ready. He plucked out a leaf from the top and. . . ate it. And said it was fine. It was. She was taken aback and didn't ask what was indicative in its taste (didn't know they were edible). Has anyone had such experience or can expound on the bouquet of pineapple leaves in revealing the inner quality?
