- Pineapples have the shape of a pinecone and have a rough, waxy rind that is covered in small, soft spikes and topped with green, pointed-tipped leaves. The flesh varies in shades yellow and are known to be seedless. The flesh is juicy and offers a sweet flavor with mild acidity, while the edible core is firmer, more leathery, and less sweet.
- Pineapple is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, as well as some iron and calcium. The pineapple’s core contains high levels of an enzyme called bromelain, which is said to be an effective anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid and has chemicals that have been shown to interfere with the growth of tumor cells.
- Whole pineapple should be left at room temperature until ripe. Once ripe, place whole pineapple, uncovered, in the refrigerator. To store cut pineapple, seal in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
