White Kaua'i pineapple: Is it ripe?

This pineapple is picked at its peak, so you can eat it immediately upon arrival. A ripe white Kaua'i pineapple will have a green rind with yellowing inside of the 'eyes'. It should not be dark forest green nor all yellow or gold, and should not have purple on any side. As the color turns to all yellow or gold, it is starting to over-ripen and needs to be consumed or frozen quickly.
