Storage

It’s a common misconception that the leaves come off easily when pineapples are ripe; in reality this happens when they’ve turned. Enjoy them soon, while they’re at their best - we suggest you eat them within a couple of days of delivery.

Variety

The varieties we source is Smooth Cayenne and Sugarloaf, sweet, juicy varieties that have better shelf-life than more familiar varieties such as Supersweet and Sweet Gold.
