Choose a pineapple that is fresh looking, appears heavy for its size and is firm - not soft. Avoid pineapples that are dark or brown in colour, are soft or weeping or that have dark spots, bruises or mould on the skin.

If you don't want to eat it straight away cut it up and store in an airtight container in the fridge where it will keep longer.
