Bear in mind when you read this that I live in the UK so don't have access to all the luscious fruit you have in the USA.
Pineapples and melons are the ones that fox me. How can you tell when they are ripe. Melons feel
the same. Pineapples well ????
I'm told if melons smell
melony they are ripe? sometimes it's hard to decide what
they smell of.. I'm also told that if you can pull a tuft of the pineapple out easily it is ripe. Any comments?
I used to be a Caregiver to an elderly lady who when I took her round the supermarket took great delight in 'snapping' runner beans in hald as she said that if they had a good 'snap' they were good to eat. We never bought the ones she had snapped!
