I try to get the pineapples with the most orange or yellow on
them, but most come in green mainly with a tiny bit of
yellow. I asked a fruit stocker at the store and he said
pineapples don't ripen after they are picked.

However, I saw an old post from two years ago where Luke
Sartor said the following, "When I am in Costa Rica,
interning at Dr. Graham's events, we usually put all the
pineapples, papayas and sometimes plantains if we have them,
out in the sun for 15-20 minutes during the day. This helps
them to avoid becoming moldy, effectively securing their
"ripening" rather than their "rotting"."

Do pineapples continue to ripen once shipped to the store and
then brought home? If so, what are the best ways to help
them out in this regard? Thanks!

Love from Las Vegas,
