pineapple leaves turn brown in direct sunlight

Evanston, IL

I have been raising a pineapple plant for several years. It thrives indoors. I have a southern exposure so there is plenty of light year around. The trouble comes in summer when I try putting the plant outside where it gets full sun almost all day long. The leaves turn brown, to the point of looking burned.

Since the pineapple is a tropical plant I would expect it to tolerate, even to require direct sun. Since I am near Chicago, the sunlight doesn't compare to the tropical sun. Any thoughts?
