Pineapple Season 🍍 is making an entrance ✨
Pineapple season is here, and we are so stoked to share these sweet, juicy treasures with you.
Only one pineapple is produced by a single plant in a single season. However, the root system shoots up little "suckers" or new plants that also produce one pineapple each.
A pineapple top can take up to 2-3 years to grow one pineapple, but the suckers can produce pineapples in less time (about a year).
Pineapples do not ripen or get any sweeter once they are picked.
Once they are ready to harvest (actually ready, unlike pineapples that are sold at grocery stores that are picked unripe), they only have a few days' window to be consumed, so eat your pineapples right away when you get them!
Typically, the more ripe the pineapple, the less "burning" sensation it gives when eaten. Sometimes, they don't burn at all, especially if the outer skin is completely removed.
