How To Select Fruits And Vegetables

Fruit should be slightly soft, apart from apples. Smell fruit to check if it’s sweet and ripe. Vegetables should be crisp and firm. Avoid bruised or damaged produce. And choose local, seasonal fruits and vegetables whenever possible. It’s that easy!

How To Store Fruits And Vegetables

How to store fruits and vegetables depends on the type of produce. For instance, bananas, cucumbers, and potatoes are best stored at room temperature. Avocados, kiwi fruit, and pears can be kept out until they ripen and then refrigerated. Put apples, berries, carrots, and dark leafy greens in the fridge.
