How to pick out the perfect fruit

Looks can be deceiving when you’re picking out the perfect piece of fruit for a healthy snack or flavorful treat. Texture and color aren’t always an accurate indicator of how a fruit will taste. For example, that picture-perfect green watermelon may look appealing, but it won’t be as sweet as the watermelon with a yellow/beige spot on the side!
Follow this guide from Shari’s Berries to help you pick out your favorite fruits at their peak – from apples and apricots to papaya and figs – based on their appearance, scent, and firmness:
