|No – Pineapples are individually hand-picked when they are fully ripened.
- Once pineapples are harvested they do not continue to increase the sugar content internally but the shell colour will turn more yellow or golden.
- If a fruit is bruised or damaged, do not leave out of the refrigerator. Peel and cut the pineapple immediately, throwing the damaged spots away and refrigerate the good parts of the fruit.
- Bruised or damaged fruit will begin to sour or decay if left out of the refrigerator and can ruin the entire fruit if left unchecked.
