Here’s A Handy Guide To Picking The Best Produce At The Grocery Store

Nothing is worse than coming home from the grocery store, only to find the avocado you chose is overly ripe and the grapes you picked are actually sour. It can be hard to pick the right produce if you don’t know what you’re looking for, but picking the perfect peach can make the difference between a sweet treat and a sour disappointment.

Luckily, our friends at Real Simple created an A to Z guide to help you make the most of your grocery shopping. They’ve included everything from fruits, vegetables, and even herbs, and they break down not only what your produce should look like, but how it should feel as well. Carrying around this handy guide can help take the guesswork out of finding the perfect tomato, and you might be surprised at how much more delicious all your fresh foods taste as well.

Check out their handy guide below:
