Fruits and Vegetables
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     In a grocery store, there is usually a produce section. This is where a shopper can find fruits and vegetables. The bright colors and smells of them can make anyone hungry. These items are sold in many different ways. It often depends on what you are buying.
 
2     A lot of produce is not packaged. It is loose in a display. It is up to you to pick out what looks good and place it into a bag. This allows you to buy just the amount that you want. You can buy only one of something if that is all that you need.
 
3     You can't take a bite out of each piece of fruit to make sure it is good. You have to use your eyes. When picking out fruit, look for pieces that don't have any bruises. Soft spots are also a sign that the fruit will soon go bad.
 
4     This is also true for vegetables like tomatoes. Don't buy any with dark spots. Sometimes color is a clue. Some fruit looks better than others. The riper a tomato, the more red it will look. This can be a sign of how old the vegetable or fruit is.
 
5     How ripe you like your fruit is up to you. Some people like their bananas to be a little green. Others think that is too fresh. They like the bananas to have some brown spots on them before they eat them. Buy what you like.
