Ripe Pineapple: The first sign of a pineapple's ripeness is its color. It should be golden-brown, without much green color left at the base. A sweet smell also indicates this fruit's ripeness. If a pineapple doesn't give off a scent, it's not quite ripe yet. If it smells a tad vinegary, it's overripe.
