Sick of wasiting your money on fruit that doesn’t taste good? ME TOO! So here are the best ways to pick your fruits to ensure excellent taste and the most antioxidants.
Picking fruit can be deceptive sometimes. Most look for color, fullness, and the texture of the fruit. However, fruits such as Apricots, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, cantaloupe, and honeydew all get their sweetness from the sap of the plant. So looking for these things doesn’t mean you are going to get a great tasting piece of fruit.
While some fruits have the ability to continue ripening on your countertops, other stop maturing after they have been picked. These fruits include, Soft berries, cherries, citrus, watermelon, pineapple, and grapes. If you try them in the store and they aren’t ripe then they won’t be any better in a couple of days.
Here’s some advice from excerpts to help you find the best tasting fruit for your healthy life style….
This fruits should smell sweet at the blossom or stem end. The end should also be tender to the touch. Another tip is to look at the veins in the skin of the melon. If the veins are still green then the melon isn’t ripe. Some chefs actually prefer to chose pale melons over the bright ones.
Peaches And Nectarines
Touch is the best way to find the right fruit. Smell can also be a great indicator. Avoid preaches and nectarines that have any green tint to their skin; this means they were picked before their time.
Look for a deep red coloring. The stem should be intact and the fruit should feel as though it ready to bust, but not be squishy.
Berries ripeness is dependent on color. Smell is also an important factor. For strawberries, avoid ones with white at the top of the berry, this means they were picked too soon. Look at the leaves of the berry to determine how old they are. If the leaves are a brownish color then they are probably old. Look for deep colors as well.
Apples should have tight and firm skin. These fruits should also be firm to the touch and should not have any give. The apple should also be the right color so make sure you know what color your apples should be.
Look for bright vibrant colors avoid ones with leathery looking skin which means they are old.
Pay attention to touch (must be tender to the touch) and fregrence.
