How to store pineapple
The best way to store pineapple depends on whether it is ripe or unripe. Here are a few tips on how to store pineapple properly:
Ripe pineapple: Ripe pineapple should be stored in the refrigerator. It will keep for several days in the refrigerator's main compartment.
Unripe pineapple: Unripe pineapple should be stored at room temperature until it ripens. This can take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on the pineapple and the temperature of the room. Once it is ripe, it should be stored in the refrigerator.
Cut pineapple: Cut pineapple should be wrapped in plastic wrap or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last for a couple of days.
Avoid Ethylene: Pineapple should be stored away from ethylene-producing fruits, such as apples, bananas, and avocados, as the ethylene gas can cause it to ripen too quickly.
Check for ripeness: Pineapple that is not fully ripe can be left at room temperature for a few days to reach the desired level of ripeness, but it's important to check them regularly and remove any that have begun to spoil.
By following these tips, you can help your pineapple stay fresh and ripe for as long as possible, allowing you to enjoy it at its best. Also, it's important to note that once pineapple is cut, the flesh will start to oxidise and darken, so it's best to consume it as soon as possible.
