How To Pick The Juiciest Fruit

Today I was standing in the produce section wearing my wife beater and flip-flops when I hear a lady speaking in the strongest valley accent I have ever heard.  She said, “oh, these look SOOOOOOO like…FUUUUUUNNNNNNNNN!”

What the heck could possibly be SOOOOOOO like…FUUUUUUNNNNNNNNN! in the produce section?  Cuz me and the young’uns wanna have fun too!

That’s when I notice she’s dressed to the nines and eye-ballin’ Raspberries.

Meanwhile, in the Orange section, there was a whole lot of sniffing going on by another shopper, and it made me wonder.  How many ways are there to find the best tasting and juiciest fruit?  Probably as many ways as there are fruits.

While valley lady looked for SOOOOOOO like…FUUUUUUNNNNNNNNN! Raspberries.

And the sniffer shopper sniffed out the perfect orange.

I stepped up to the box and began checking the weight-size ratio of each orange.

This method has worked for me so I thought I would share it with you.
