I adore pineapple but struggle mightily to choose the ripest fruit at the grocery store. There are ᴍᴀɴy different pieces of wise counsel about choosing the best fruit; some of it is absurd, some of it sounds reasonable enough, and some of it truly works. How about plucking pineapples off of trees you grew yourself? How do you harvest a pineapple plant and when should you select a pineapple?

When to pick a Pineapple
Pineapples have a syncarp, or fruit without seeds, which is what makes them so tasty. This basically means that a number of bʟᴏssoms fuse together to form a single huge fruit. These low-maintenance herbaceous perennials are the ideal size for most gardens or potted plants because they only reach heights of 2 12 to 5 feet. The plant is deemed ripe when it develops blooms, and you may anticipate fruit in around six months.

Even though they are quite easy to grow, determining the best time to harvest pineapples can be difficult. In general, when a pineapple becomes older, the individual fruitlets flatten and the peel begins to turn yellow from the bottom of the fruit up. The pineapple fruit’s color is not the only indicator for selection. This change in color and size signals the beginning of pineapple harvesting. Pineapples that are mature weigh 5 to 10 pounds.
Before harvesting pineapple, there are two additional factors to think about. A reliable ripeness indicator is a smell. It ought to smell strongly of sweet and tang. Tap the fruit as well. Allow the fruit to stay on the plant to ripen more if it should hollow. It’s probably time to pick pineapples if it sounds solid.

How to Harvest a pineapple plant

You can harvest the fruit when at least one-third of it is yellow. Additionally, you can harvest pineapple when it is fully grown or in the late mature green phase. The pineapple can then ripen at room temperature. It should not be chilled until it is fully ripe. An immature pineapple might get spoiled if it is refrigerated. Simply use a sharp kitchen knife to cut the pineapple from the plant where it connects to the stalk and collect it. The fruit should then be eaten right away, refrigerated if it is fully ripe, or allowed to continue to ripen at room temperature if necessary.
