Pineapple - 1 ct
The Golden is a pineapple that's been to charm school. The tartness has been reined in just a bit. It is sweeter and mellower than other pineapples.

Pineapple is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, as well as some iron and calcium. The pineapple’s core contains high levels of an enzyme called bromelain, which is said to be an effective anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid. Bromelain even has chemicals that have been shown to interfere with the growth of tumor cells.
We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic veggies and fruits from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesiticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops. We target farms that put an emphasis on health, safety and the fair treatment of their employees, their animals and their farm. We have high standards, and so do our farms.
MORE FROM THIS FARMER
Fresh pineapple is quite perishable. It bruises easily in spite of its seemingly armored exterior and will ferment if kept at room temperature for too long. If storing at room temperature, use within 2 days.
Storing at room temperature will increase the acidity level of the pineapple, but will not improve sweetness. You can extend the lifespan to 3 to 5 days by refrigerating the whole pineapple in a perforated plastic bag.
Once trimmed and cut, be sure the pineapple is covered in juice in an airtight container, refrigerate and use within 5 to 7 days. Let the fruit return to room temperature before eating to improve flavor.
