When buying fresh fruits and vegetables, choose those that have a good shape, texture and color and a fresh smell. It is best to shop for fresh produce often and buy only what you will use within a few days. This will cut down on the amount wasted because of spoilage.

When shopping for vegetables, key factors are firmness and color. Choose those that are as firm or crisp as possible and consistent in coloring. Unlike fruit, smell doesn't play a big factor in a vegetable's freshness, although anything that smells overly sweet or sour is likely passed its prime.
