The Sweet Smell of the Season

My first mango of summer 2012.

I don’t know when people started to use touch to test ripeness.  Smell your fruit, people.

It should be pungent, like this mango.  You’d have to be a Dustbuster to smell a mango from Guatemala at your neighborhood Whole Foods Market.

If you can smell your fruit, you won’t end up with a mealy, dry peach or a metallic-tasting mango.

If this isn’t a reminder I don’t know what is.
