Ticos judge the ripeness of a pineapple by giving it a slap.
A good pina should sound firm and compact. The yellow pineapple is best for eating. The white pineapple is more acid and is used in cooking and to tenderize meats. A green color on the outside does not necessarily reflect unripeness. You should be able to easily pluck a leaf from the top of a ripe pina
