Guide to Choosing Fruits and Vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables are an important staple in many diets and during season, they are cheap to buy. Here is a guide to choosing fruits and veggies written by a produce worker.
You can tell if an avo is ripe by the color and how firm it is. If it is bright green and hard, it won’t be ready for a few days at least. A ripe avocado will be slightly soft and have a dark green skin, but it shouldn’t be too soft. If push your finger into the skin and feel a “space” between the skin and flesh, it is past its prime.
