Regarding Pineapples:

  • The smaller the grade number, the bigger the pineapple you have ordered/received.
  • 7/8, 6/7, 5/6, 4/5: Refers to the average number of pineapples in a standard produce flat.


If You Order Size:
  •     6/7 pineapples and you routinely get 7 to 8 in each box on average you are receiving small 6/7’s
  •     6/7 size pineapple and you routinely get 6 to 7 in each box on average you are receiving average 6/7’s
  •     6/7 size pineapple and you routinely get 5 to 6 in each box on average you are receiving large 6/7’s


Regarding Healix Pineapple Peeler and Corer Blades:

  • mm = Millimeter
  • mm and inch sizes above refer to finished cut fruit dimensions


  • OD =  Blade Outside Diameter

The outside diameter of the blade is important because you want the blade to enter the meat of the topped and tailed pineapple, not the peel as you begin your cut.

  • ID =    Blade Inside Diameter

The interior diameter of the blade is important to know because this is the finished diameter of your fresh cut fruit
