There are so many tricks to know when you pick out the perfect fruit. Don’t say you don’t squeeze those mangoes to see if their ripe. Or sniff the cantaloupe to see if they smell sweet. Each fruit has their own perfect trick to find out if they’re perfect to pick out and take home.

Pineapples are no different!

When you’re at the store, it’s tough to know exactly which one to pick – but this trick that I learned from my best friend’s mother in law has yet to fail me. When you’re in the produce aisle pick out a pineapple, and look into the fronds – try not to get poked.

Look for a smaller frond near the middle.

When you find the frond, gently tug. If the frond comes right out – then you have found the perfect pineapple. If it doesn’t release – nope, it’s not the pineapple for you!
