The juicy flesh of pineapple has a sweet flavor with a mild acidity, whereas the edible core is firmer, more leathery, and less sweet.
Pineapples can be cooked or eaten raw. For a salsa, dice fresh pineapple and combine it with tomatoes, herbs, and chilies.
storage: A ripe one can last up to three days in the refrigerator. Whole pineapples should not be kept in the refrigerator; however, once the flesh has been peeled and diced, it is OK to keep it chilled in an airtight container.
