MOSCOW, February 28 – RIA Novosti. Chinese portal user Sohu named three types of strawberries that are not worth buying.
The man noted that now many sellers add harmful additives and hormones to the berry, hoping to improve the presentation of the product. That is why it is important to be able to distinguish between good and bad strawberries.
The author writes that when choosing strawberries, you need to pay attention to the smell of the berry. Strawberries that ripen naturally in the garden have a very strong fruity aroma, and this berry will have a distinct flavor. And fruits that are odorless, but stand out in a rich and beautiful color, most likely contain dyes and do not have a good taste, so you should not buy them.
According to the author, large berries are usually obtained with the use of hormones that stimulate the growth of the fruit. The man points out that excessive consumption of such strawberries will harm the body. He also warns against buying berries of an unusual shape.
In addition, the author recommends paying attention to the color of the leaves at the top of the berry. Freshly harvested fruits are distinguished by bright, emerald green leaves, and the dark green foliage at the top of the strawberry indicates that the berries are stale and were not picked on the day of sale.
