When I was 16 years old Pineapple be wild and stay sweet shirt (many moons ago), I worked for a summer at the Dole Pineapple Cannery in Hawaii. I know what pineapple smells like, as each day when I came home from work, I reeked of the smell of it (that summer I made few friends. Normally, this would be bad advice in the context of humans and animals, but in the case of pineapples, this is the first tell-tale sign to determine sweetness. Sugar comes from the bottom of the fruit (butt), where it migrates to the top as it ripens. The butt of the pineapple is where it should be most fragrant, so put your nose there (not on the crown). If it smells sweet, like pineapple juice, it is ripe. If you smell nothing, that means there are insufficient sugar and the fruit will not be sweet (i.e., it has been harvested too early).

Pineapples ripen very little after Pineapple be wild and stay sweet shirt they have been harvested, so you don’t want to pick one that is underripe, hoping and praying it will get ripe later. It won’t. As the fruit starts to ripen, starting from the bottom, look for yellow, golden color. The higher the yellow rises toward the crown, the more sugar (and sweetness) it will have. Yellow on the bottom and green on the top will yield inconsistency in sweetness (i.e., some parts sweet, other parts not). Ideally, you want the yellow color to rise all the way to the crown, which means the sugar is distributed evenly through the fruit.
