Safe Fruits & Vegetables


All pesticides remain on the peel of the fruit, which isn't eaten.

Choosing: A pale yellow peel with green tips is tart and great for frying or pie.
When mostly yellow, the pulp will be firmer and still good for pies and tarts.
The last stage is a deep yellow with brown spots; this is the sweetest for eating.

Store at room temperature or ripen in a brown bag.
