Pineapples should be heavy for their size, well-shaped, and fresh-looking with dark green crown leaves. Shells should be dry and crisp and range in color from greenish-brown to golden-brown. Color of shell does not indicate ripeness or sugar content. Pineapples do not ripen after harvesting; they are picked when fully ripe.
