From the Farm to Your Table: A Consumer's Guide to Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Have you ever wondered how to select the best fruits and vegetables at the grocery store, but weren't sure what to look for? This colorful handbook, by James Thompson and Adel Kader of UC Davis, provides practical advice for selecting good-quality, healthy fruits and vegetables that are a vital part of your family's daily diet. You'll learn why there is more to fruit and vegetable quality than meets the eye and how to handle fresh produce at home to maintain quality and safety.

You'll also learn how growing, handling and harvesting factors can affect quality. Handy tables show the steps between the field and your table, and which fruits and vegetables should be stored in the refrigerator and which are okay to leave on the counter.
