Interestingly enough, all the sites linked direct you to remove and toss the core.

^ I know Andy, but I keep trying what everyone tells me to throw away...not everything exactly.Mango skin for example, I love it, amd I love to eat crunchy prawn's tail inn Tempura or anywhere else that prawn is left with a tail! My husband gets so embarrased, I have learnt to chew it quietly in restaurants. Please don't tell anyone except friends in DC!

Core

The Costco pineapples may be different. Don't they charge you to go int there like Sam's Club? I checked the site and they don't indicate if they have groceries in there or not. I will ask you who get to go in do they have regular grocery items? I don't think anyone could eat the core i throw out. I am with Andy M on this one. I gave one to the dog and he ate around it guess cause I had eaten on it and he just bit around on it and left the core too. The ones at Whole Foods are the same as the brand I get from regular grocery store. Costco must have different ones or else maybe something to do with some being older. I just have to buy every week.

I'd be wary of eating mango skin, as it has a sap in it that can cause a rash like poison ivy.

I thank you for sharing that as I feel knowledge is power. That is new to me. I appreciate someone who is willing to help. Thanks again.

I really did not know that marmalady. Interestingly, it's true that since I could climb a tree, I used to climb my granpa's mango tree and sit on the branches and eat the mangoes, skin and all and not even washed. I don't know anyone from Kenya who peels mangoes before eating them. In most fruits and vegs, under the skin is where all the goodness is. I certainly will research on it further.Thanks anyway for bringing this to everyone else's notice. I wouldn't want anyone to have a bad rash from my mango post.

Sizzles, if I remember correctly, it's only certain species of mango that produce the 'itchy' sap - perhaps the ones from Africa don't have it? Are you susceptible to poison ivy - asking because all my life, I've never had poison ivy til we moved here to Charleston, and I've now had 2 cases that were just terrible - doc said it's a different type of poison ivy than we had in NJ.

Sorry I got off topic here, didn't mean to hijack the pineapple questions.
