This Pink Glow Pineapple is not your traditional yellow pineapple, it’s PINK! Pink Pineapple is real and you can eat it too!
Pinkglow Pineapples from Del Monte are grown in Costa Rica as they have the perfect climate for growing pineapples. There are many varieties of pineapples, in fact, there are over 37 different pineapple varieties!
We have heard from others that Pink pineapple isn’t as sour, sweeter. That being said, if you pick out a ripe pineapple, they’re sweet as sugar. In our review of yellow vs pink pineapple, we actually found that our yellow pineapple was much sweeter than the pinkglow pineapple.
When buying a Pinkglow pineapple you’ll notice that it doesn’t have the crown. Del Monte actually uses those crowns to grow new pineapples. These pineapples aren’t produced in bulk like regular pineapples and they’re harvested by hand and the crowns are cut off and replanted from there.
As you can see the pineapples are also very different in appearance. The pink pineapple looks much riper than the traditional pineapple. It’s completely yellow/orange whereas the yellow pineapple has green tones.
PINK GLOW PINEAPPLE REVIEW TASTE TEST
If you wanted to store them long-term we suggest cutting them up and then freezing them. (See how to cut pineapple) You can freeze pineapple for up to 3 months but we suggest cutting within 2 days of purchase if ripe.
Yes, they are genetically modified to have their natural pink pigment. These pineapples are modified to have lycopene which you’d also see in watermelons and tomatoes.
Per our taste buds if you pick out a ripe pineapple it will be sweet. We noticed our ripe yellow pineapple (on the left, pictured above) was sweeter than the two pink pineapples we purchased.
