Tops and tricks

Picking bananas: Look for bananas that are bright yellow with a few brown spots. They should feel firm but give slightly when pressed. Avoid bananas that are green or overly mushy, as they may not be ripe enough or past their prime.

Blueberries: Opt for plump, firm blueberries with a deep blue color and a powdery white coating (known as bloom). This indicates freshness. Avoid blueberries that are soft, shriveled, or have signs of mold.
