How to spot the freshest strawberries and oranges

Selecting strawberries and oranges is based on certain sensory cues to determine their quality and taste. 

Here's a summary of the steps:

For strawberries: Pick up the strawberry and smell it. If it has a strong strawberry smell, it indicates that the fruit is ripe and likely to have a good taste. On the other hand, if you can barely smell the strawberry fragrance, it suggests that the fruit may lack flavor and not taste as expected.

For oranges: Look for oranges that are the same size but feel heavier. This indicates that the orange has a higher water content, which is often associated with juiciness and flavor. Additionally, a strong orange aroma can be an indicator of a flavorful orange. If an orange feels very light, it may lack water and could taste dry or like cotton wool.

These selection methods rely on your senses of smell, touch, and prior knowledge of the desired flavors. However, it's important to note that individual preferences can vary, and the taste of fruits can also be influenced by factors such as variety, ripeness, and storage conditions. It's always a good idea to consider personal preferences and experiment with different fruits to find the ones that suit your taste.
