A large number of fruits are on the market in summer. In addition to watermelon, grapes are also very popular summer fruits. Now is the season when a large number of grapes are listed, and the varieties of grapes are very diverse, and each grape has its own characteristics
However, grapes also have their shortcomings. Because the fruit is rich in water and the grape skin is very thin, it is not easy to store, and the fresh-keeping period is very short. From the orchard to the market, it sometimes breaks in less than a week. Picking at high time is prone to a lot of bad fruit and rotten fruit.
If the grapes are picked before they are ripe, the taste of the grapes is poor, and the seed setting rate is very low. In order to solve this problem, many fruit farmers do not use bulking agents, ripening agents, etc., to make the grapes mature in disguise. Although they have a good “face value”, this Growing grapes is not healthy to eat.
So when buying grapes, no matter what kind of grapes, don’t buy them even if they are cheap!
Don’t buy these 3 kinds of cheap!
1. Look at the hoarfrost of grapes
Generally, there will be a layer of hoarfrost on the surface of naturally ripe grapes. It looks like a layer of dust has fallen. In fact, it is not dirty. We can wipe it off with our hands. This layer of hoarfrost is actually formed by the condensation of the fructose of the grapes. , and the thicker the hoarfrost, the more fully grown the grapes are, the higher the maturity, and the fresher they are.
If the grapes you encounter have no hoarfrost on the surface and are particularly shiny, then the grapes are likely to have been treated with a ripening agent, or the hoarfrost has fallen off after being placed for a long time and is no longer fresh, then this is the case. It is not recommended to buy grapes without hoarfrost on the surface
2. Look at the color of the grapes
Generally, normal grapes, in the process of growth, receive uneven light, so it is difficult to have the same color. Naturally ripe grapes have uneven color, generally darker on the outside and lighter on the inside.
If the grapes we encounter are of the same color, and each one is the same color, then it is likely to have been treated with a ripening agent, but it is far from ripe, and the taste and taste are relatively poor. Such grapes are not recommended to buy. .
3. Smell the smell of grapes
When picking grapes, we can smell the smell with our nose. Generally, naturally mature grapes smell a fruity aroma, and the greater the maturity, the stronger the fruity aroma.
If you come across grapes that don’t smell anything, they’re probably overripe. Of course, if it smells sour or alcohol, don’t buy such grapes. The taste and taste are poor, and they may have deteriorated.
Do not buy the above three kinds of grapes, no matter how cheap they are, they are likely to be ripened. In addition, in order to choose fresh and delicious grapes, you need to pay attention to the following 3 points
4. Look at the size and density of the fruit
The same variety of grapes, the larger the grapes on the same bunch, the more abundant the growth, the more sweetness and moisture, the better the taste. Therefore, when choosing, choose the ones with more large grains on the same bunch. Buy.
In addition, the grapes of the same variety generally grow more compactly, and the nutrients in the grapes are more abundant. If the nutrients are insufficient, they will grow looser.
Of course, this is the same variety of grapes for comparison, do not use red grapes and roses for comparison.
5. Look at the stalk
Fresh grapes are generally picked not long ago, and the color of the stalk is generally bright green or bright yellow, which also depends on the quality of the grapes.
If the fruit stalk has dried up and turned brown, and the grapes are still scattered when lifted by hand, it means that it has been placed for a long time and is no longer fresh, and the nutrients and water will be greatly lost. It is not recommended to buy.
