One of our Maui grown fruit is the Maui Gold Pineapple.
WHY? it is simply super sweet (I mean sweeter than any pineapple brand).
It is juicer, less acidic and TASTY!
It is great to eat as is and/or as a compliment for any meal.
There are many ways to cut a pineapple.
We want to share 1 method on How To Cut A Pineapple.
1) Wash the pineapple, make sure you have a sharp knife and a clean/wide cutting board.
2) Cut-off the bottom of the pineapple.
3) Stand the pineapple. Use the top (leafy part) as a handle to cut the skin-off of the side.
4) Continue cutting the skin-off of it.
5) Cut the top of the pineapple. Then, you are left with a cylinder pineapple flesh.
6) *Optional: Depending on how you cut the skin-off, you might see some divits left. You can use the end of a peeler to scoop it out. *
7) We prefer cutting the pineapple into wedges and chunks. Cut the pineapple in half then into quarter sections (lengthwise).
*If you have not done the 6) and if there are any divits that you have not cut off, this is another opportunity for you to remove.*
8) Place the quarter section of the pineapple core side up. Slice the core by cutting lengthwise just under the core. *The core is easily distinguishable from the edible fruit. The core is lighter in color and fibrous in texture.*
Repeat with remaining quarters.
9) Once all the core has been removed, cut the pineapple into desired chuck sizes.
10) Pineapple can be served chilled or room temperature. ENJOY!
As I mentioned, Maui Gold Pineapple is locally and exclusively grown in Maui, HI.
Maui Gold Pineapple production has gone through many changes for the past years.
It used to be located on the West side, Kapalua which offered Pineapple Field Tours.
Mom said that the tour was very educational and the view from the field was beautiful.
The Pineapple field and tours were moved to Upcountry Hal’iimaile. Thus, Maui Gold pineapples are grown across 1,350 acres on the slopes of Haleakala, which makes it an idyllic location and weather conditions (warm sunny days, cool nights, fresh water and rich volcanic soil) for growing Maui Gold pineapples.
There’s so much history on how Maui Gold Pineapple evolved. If you visit Maui and would like to learn more about Maui Gold Pineapple (its history, how it is grown and learn its production process), joining the Pineapple Tour Express is an educational joyful activity for the day.
Lots of Golden Thanks, Happy Tasty Tuesday!

Oh my that looks so good! My mouth is watering now 🙂 I have only ever been to the Dole Pineapple plantation in Oahu, but I would want to go to Maui Gold to compare! 🙂
Oh how my MOM loves fresh pineapples. I think it is pretty tastie too. MOM uses an electric knife to cut the outer skin off.
Pineapple is definitely tasty!
We all LOVE fresh pineapple!! The freshest we have ever had was when we got it at the Farmer’s Market in Florida. I am sure that yours is better!! LadyBug loves Pineapple too…looks like Sugar does too.
Enjoy your day!

Ooooh tasty and healthy
I love pineapple! I was told in the grocery that you pull at the leaves until one comes out – if one does, your pineapple is ripe. How do you pick your pineapples?

Madi and Mom says
Mom said she remember eating her first taste of pineapple when they visited your beautiful State.
Would you believe she has never ever purchased one for home. MOL BUT now she knows how to cut them if she does buy one.
Hugs madi your BFFF

thanks for the tip on cutting chunks, when i cut mine i cut the top and bottom off and then cut the peel off and slice and dice. this might work better for chunks than mine does.

Very interesting – thank you! Our pawrents were surprised to learn that pineapples grow on the ground. They thought for sure they grew in trees (they took the Dole Pineapple Tour).
Keep Calm & Bark On,

Hey Sugar, Jet here.
Some humans here try to grow pineapples. If they have success, they are short and squat.
Thank you for profiling the GOLD STANDARD! (pun intended!)

Sugar I’ve never had the Maui Gold but bet it’s delicious…They used to grow pineapples commercially in Jensen Beach FL, but the plantation was closed down many years ago and now it’s part of a public recreation area. I worked as a prep chef at a huge convention facility for a while and we would have to prep dozens of cases of pineapples each day…and yes, we used exactly the same method you describe…after the first case or so the enzymes in the pineapple would make your skin feel all slimy and strange but it sure did away with any callouses you might have 😉 Happy Tasty Tuesday!
Nom nom. I haven’t had pineapple before, looks good!
I love pineapple Sugar. It and coconut are 2 of my 3 favorite flavors. And that pineapple looks woofulicious and of course you look woofilicious too!
Happy Tasty day! 🙂
Wow Sugar, Pineapple fresh from the source. That sounds yummy!!!
