Fresh Spring Fruit

Steve Rosenberg with Liberty Heights Fresh tells us how to choose the best-tasting strawberries, and lemons… which are a fresh buy right now. His two favorite picks are strawberries and lemons.

1. Strawberries

• You should look for fruit that has none or very little unripe shoulders.

• The best strawberries are going to be the ones that are deep dark red.

• Strawberries are going to be abundant I would say for the next 4-6 weeks.

• Look for a bright sheen on the strawberry.

2. Meyer Lemons

• Meyer lemons are much lower in acid than normal eureka lemons and as a consequence when you taste it, it’s much sweeter.

• Meyer lemons were discovered in California years ago.

• Much cheaper and abundant during the winter season.

• They are great for baking an making soufflés or fruit syrup.

• We are at the very end of the citrus season, which ends in a few weeks. There are still great oranges, clementines, and lemons.
