7 Ways to Tell If a Pineapple Is Bad

The thing about pineapples is that they’re hard to come by in some places. They are a tropical fruit, so they often come with a hefty price tag. That means when you buy one you definitely want to get your money’s worth.

Here are some ways you can tell if a pineapple is bad.

The Pineapple Is Moldy

You can spot mold when you see little wide spots that look a bit foamy forming on the skin of the pineapple. Put it down and move on.

Your Pineapple Starts to Smell

The best place to sniff is at the bottom of the pineapple (the part without the leaves coming out of it) because that’s where things will likely start to go bad first.

Look for Spots

Pineapples come in shades of green, yellow, brown, slight orange, and other similar hues that make spotting any sort of discoloration harder. What we’re looking for here is a darker area that looks like it’s turning dark brown or black.
