Did some research. Not all pineapples are yellow
when ripe. This local market said theirs were green
and fully ripe, so not to look at the color to see.
I hope this is true...I have always heard that you
must see yellow to show it's sweet...but maybe some
are different. The Hawaii ones I know of are always
yellow and sooo good. But the organic ones locally
sold are not from Hawaii. Anyway, this is what the
website for this market said. "Whole Foods Market"
if you are familiar.

Myth #1: Never buy a green pineapple, it is not
ripe. The scoop: Pineapples are fully ripe when
green and color is not an indicator of ripeness or

Myth #2: If the leaves on top pull out easily, it
means it's ripe.
The scoop: Contrary to popular belief, this is not
necessarily a sure sign of ripeness. Pineapples are
picked when ripe and do not ripen after harvest. Our
Whole Trade pineapple is picked at peak ripeness!

Myth #3: Choosing a pineapple at the store is tricky
business. The scoop: Selecting pineapple is quite
simple! Choose fruit that looks fresh- look for
sturdy green leaves and firm, consistent fruit.
Avoid fruit that looks dry or dehydrated.

So funny because even the people that work there
said that their pineapples are not good ones because
they are not yellow....but their website says
otherwise. I can see why one would get confused.

Dr G or anyone: do you think this is true? Reason I
ask is that many people think a ripe banana is a
yellow one without many they could be
wrong about the pineapple too...what do you think?
