IF you’re looking for something with a tropical flavour as the weather warms up, try a topless pineapple.
It takes at least 12 months for a pineapple to grow but the crops have been plentiful making this variety a good buy.
Most of the pineapples on the market come from Queensland where they are grown all-year round.
The topless pineapple is easy to pick out because it does not have the green stem at the top of the fruit. This variety is known for its sweet flavour.
It is normally ripe and ready to eat straight from the shelf when you buy it. Even if the topless pineapple looks a little green in the shops, it should still taste beautiful when you cut it open and enjoy a slice to eat.
Other produce to keep a look out for this week include pink lady and granny smith apples, along with lettuce, beetroot, rhubarb and celery.
TOPLESS PINEAPPLE Cost: from $2.90 each
