not worry about letting it ripen on the counter. The pineapple will become softer and juicier on the counter but it will not become sweeter. All of a pineapple's sugar comes from the starches in the stem of the plant so once that source is cut off, the pineapple cannot make more sugar. A pineapple will ferment on the counter if not eaten, so if keeping for longer than two days, store in the fridge for up to 4 more days.
