Approximately 9 - 12 baby pineapples
Central/South America and USA
Despite their name, baby pineapples aren’t immature pineapples at all, but rather a specific miniature variety also known as Queen Victoria Pineapples.
They average about 4.5” tall (plus leaves) by 3.5” in diameter, and unlike conventional pineapples are completely edible on the inside (no tough core to remove!). Each pineapple is just the right size for a single serving. Baby pineapples are a lower acid, sweeter variety.
Store baby pineapples in the refrigerator.
Up to ten days.
RECIPES & TIPS
Use baby pineapples in dishes and with flavors where you would use conventional pineapples. Cut them in ways that display their size and appearance (halves or skin & leaf on long wedges) for interesting presentations. Try throwing halves or wedges on the grill!
