How to Pick Your Fruits & Vegetables
Everyone buys produce because it’s an essential part of our daily lives. Check out these helpful tips on how to pick the best produce!
Strawberry – In California strawberry season is from April to June but we carry them all year round. You can tell strawberries are ripe when the redness of the berry reaches all the way to the top.
Watermelon – It takes about 80 to 95 days for a watermelon to be fully grown and they are in season from July through August. Here’s how you can pick a great watermelon:
- The watermelon should feel very heavy.
- Look for the creamy yellow spot because that means its ripe.
- Lastly, give it a knock, a ripe one will have a deep hollow sound.
Avocado – Who doesn’t love avocados, they are in season for 15 weeks starting late April through August. Pay attention to the color and squeeze the avocado lightly to know if it’s almost ready, it should feel firm and not too soft. Look at the stem and peel, if its green under there, then it is good and if its brown then its overripe.
