How to cut a pineapple

         Pineapple is a tropical fruit named after its resemblance of a pine cone. When i was young  my dad will cut the pineapple and he'll do it perfectly. We kids will eat the fruit and take the discarded crown to the garden and plant it but i don't remember seeing even one pineapple plant coming from those crowns. Raw pineapple is an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C. 
     To find out the ripeness of a pineapple: pull a leaf from the crown, if it comes off easily then it's ripe. If the pineapple feel soft if we press on it's side then it's over ripe.
