Hot Pineapple Tips!

1. Best pineapple for consumption
Did you know how to choose best pineapple ready for consumption?
Every pineapple variety have difference maturity index between each other. In order to find the best pineapple ready for consumption, we should know what is the pineapple maturity index we would like to purchase on the market. On average at maturity index 3, or 1/4 to 2/4 golden/yellow colour appear from the bottom to the top, the pineapple is great for consumption at that time. 

Other factor that we should consider is the ripening process. Pineapple which is ripen on the storage have a difference sweetness as compare to pineapple which is naturally ripen on the farm. Pineapple which naturally ripen on the farm normally more sweeter. 

If you are the buyer or importer, you should consider the journey of your pineapple. Shorter journey is better because you can bring more matured pineapple which can give better taste as compare to others. In addition, you also can reduce the damage risk and have more time to distribute and sell in the market.

2. Pineapple and water
Water is very important for every plant to survive and grow better but did you know that pineapple plant is quiet sensitive with water? Without sufficient water, pineapple still can grow and might produce small fruit but excessive water holding in your farm for a few hours can invite disease and destroy your plant.

One good advise is to maintain you drain properly in order to control water level where can give optimum input to your pineapple. 

3. Pineapple and Soil
In general every soil have difference PH and nutrient. Without any additional input or fertilizer, plant will grow differently. For commercial planting it is advisable to analyze your soil PH and nutrient before planting activities take place. Soil analysis can help you to add required fertilizer to your plant in producing good quality fruit. Without analyzing the soil condition, you might add same nutrient to the soil which is totally wasting.
