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
