How do you "tear off the top" of a pineapple. Does that mean just remove the spikey green bits without cutting the skin. Don't think I'm able to do that with my bare hands ..?

I live in a peach growing area. Peaches are picked green so that they don't bruise. They very definitely ripen and sweeten after picking or no one in this country would be eating peaches.

I don't understand why many people think that pineapples do not ripen after picking.

maybe I live in an alternate universe,

but most of the pineapples at my local supermarkets are not ripe (hard, no sweet smell or taste). When they are at room temp for a few days they soften, smell and taste sweet=ripe (the leaves pull out easily when ripe
.
Other who live in the vicinity also experience the strange phenomena ripening picked pineapples but, there are no increase in UFO sightings hear.

Pineapples can be green or yellow when ripe. The do not increase in sweetness once picked. They do soften and change in smell, but their sweetness does not increase.
