Tips on Buying Fresh Fruit

Whether you like fruit in your meals or on their own, here are a few tips on buying fresh fruit.

Tropical Fruit

  1. Buy in season – in season fruits come from closer to home and generally offer much better flavor
  2. Buy fruits in open bins – so you can select the exact items you want. Fruits in a bag often include some damaged goods.
  3. Smell the fruit – they’ll usually smell sweet when ripe or sour if beginning to spoil
  4. Feel for a tender texture – fruits that don’t have a thick skin will have a little bit of give when ready to consume
