Did you know that it takes a pineapple at least three years to fully mature? The time in which they become ready to pick is between March and June and they don't ripen after they are picked. The colour of a pineapple can sometimes throw people off because some are green in colour while some are a nice yellowish gold tone, but the colour has nothing to do with the ripeness of the pineapple, it just depends on where it was grown. Pineapple plants can also be grown from the pineapple top. If you purchase a pineapple, eat it, or use it in a recipe and then take the pineapple top and plant it in dirt. You won't grow an actual pineapple fruit from it, but it makes for a lovely looking house plant. This recipe is made with one whole, fresh pineapple that you peel, core and slice yourself. The results for using a fresh pineapple for this recipe will give it that super fresh and juicy, sweet pineapple flavour everyone will love.
