To store your fresh pineapple longer:
Wash your pineapple well. Cut only what you want to eat from the bottom & stick the rest of the uncut pineapple in a plastic bag. The top can stick out – no problem and keep it in the refrig.
Then just cut off what you want per serving for up to 3 weeks depending on how cold your refrig is and how ripe the pineapple was when you brought it home.
