Ok.  This is by far one of my favorite and most informative food-related articles I’ve come across.  I worked in a grocery store for some 7 years while in college, and a lot of the customer complaints and praises came from the produce section.  Those who complained usually complained about the out-of-season produce.  It’s not pretty enough, fresh enough, tasty enough.  Well…there’s a reason behind that.  It’s OUT-OF-SEASON.

Customers also need to know how to pick their produce.  Even in-season fruits and veggies are not always the freshest.

The customers who praised the produce were almost always the ones who knew what to pick and when to pick it.  They must’ve read this article, or something similar to it.  🙂  Don’t forget to check out each of the 25 specific fruits and veggies in the article, what to look for and when to buy them!
