Week 5 – Fruits and Vegetables “Selecting and Storing Fruits and Vegetables” Selecting Produce is shipped everywhere so it’s harvested way before this. There are artificial means to make fruit ripen better and faster. Fruits should be purchased when ripe. Color should be deep and rich, no pale. Gently squeeze the fruit to see if it’s firm. Shape should be fully developed. Aroma can tell you if a fruit is ripe, it will smell like it tastes. Feel the weight of a fresh fruit; it should be heavier because it has not lost water weight yet, the longer it sits the more water it loses. A fruit that is picked before its finished growing or not fully developed will be small in shape and size, and bitter or sour in flavor, this is called an Immature Fruit. A fruit that has reached its full size but is picked before it’s had time to ripen is called an Under Ripe Fruit. Bananas ripen at room temperature. The riper the melon the more hollow it sounds. It’s best not to choose already or too ripe fruit; it can have a bad flavor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
