They're ripe when you can pull a top leaf out easily. That's how to check in the supermarket.

Yes I know that, but that's after they've been cut and transported halfway around the world.
OK, I'll rephrase the question; how do pineapple growers know when their crop is ready to harvest? :iconbiggrin:

I'm not sure they do, given the number of underripe ones you find in shops. :tongue:
