I will only buy fresh pineapple if I drive for miles and buy it at a very good place - I often drive there as their fruit is far fresher, and more expensive! than anywhere else....It lasts longer and tastes better.

I have tried pineapples from ordinary shops and often they are not ripe, and not sweet like the ones I get at the expensive shop.

Quite a different taste to tinned pineapple.

I don't regularly fresh pineapple for the same reasons others have stated. Pineapple are often flavourless from the supermarket. If I buy one it is because I have smelt them before I see them . If they smell good they taste good . I am more likely to buy them if I pass a side of the road stall or I am in the area they are grown.
I also like to plant the tops in my garden and have grown lovely pineapples after a couple of years.
I do buy tinned pineapple as I find it thirst quenching in a drink blended with crushed ice and sometimes yogurt. Sometimes I add a little soda water after I have blitzed it.
Yum . . . I do that sometimes and I add mint. Divine.

Yes, even Basil is lovely with it.

well we are a funny pear?

sometimes in summer. I'm usually left disappointed when they're not sweet :(
Whilst I love pineapples, I don't buy them regularly. The pineapples found in supermarkets have a different taste and are not fresh. If I see some pineapple at the green grocer which is fresher, I will buy some then.
I never buy tinned pineapple and I wouldn't say I "regularly" buy fresh pineapple . . . .because I love it sooooo and would gobble it all up. I used to live next door to a pineapple farm and you never want anything else after you have eaten fresh out of the field. The farmer used to leave huge pineapples out in a big crate with an honesty box - 50c or $1.

oh wow, how delicious - that is like the pineapples in Asia - taste different - sweeter even than my expensive ones!

Rice, As I grow up eating paw-paw, I have always smelt them before I've bought them. If they're under ripe, I put them out in the sun for a few days, or leave them in the fruit bowl, & they soon ripened up that way. I have a slice on my cereal every day. I just love them, but the question was of cause re pineapple, (me!) not paw-paw!
by Miro
I can't touch them, they are just one thing in life I find impossible to pick up.
Just Hate with a passion their 'feel'.

Plus I have had fresh pineapple, and really don't like it that much :(
I am like that with peaches.

I don't buy it regularly. I buy it sometimes. I enjoy fresh pineapple
by AJ
No, I haven't brought a fresh pineapple for many many years, because I"m sure it's not going to tatse nice. I only keep a tin of pineapple in the pantry in case I need it for a recipe.
by Miro
I love pineapple but haven't bought a fresh one in years. A great fresh pineapple is a delight but like most fruit I find 'fresh' ones disappointing as others have said. I use tinned pineapple in recipes.
I can't figure out how the ones in the supermarket smell like a teenager's left sneaker . . . *bleargh*
by Rice
. . . and the same goes for pawpaws . . I just don't bother to smell them any more . . . unless I see a cut pawpaw of a decent colour, I move on.
by Rice
lol, Rice. So true.
I just bought one a couple of days ago. However, I rarely eat them because they burn my dry mouth. Even though they are supposed to be sweet I still need to put sugar over the slices. I ended up cutting the slices into small chunks and making a fresh fruit salad for after dinner lasf night. They are a rare occurrence in my household.
I don't buy fresh pineapple regularly, but when I do buy them I do enjoy them.
I like a good pineapple but don't buy them all the time because I find it hard to know from the outside how nice they'll be. Also it's a bit of a job cutting it all up when you're in a rush to have some fruit.
Most of you must be living in queensland, buy from side of the road yum, The tinned ones are fine and I buy the unweetened ones for a rice and ham dish, some of the fresh ones at supermarkets leave a weird furry after taste in my mouth yuk.
