How to choose sweet cherries without worms: four tricks that really work
Sweet cherry season has begun. This bright and attractive berry is very healthy and contains many vitamins, particularly A and C. However, cherries can often be competed for by pests that eat them from within.
FoodOboz editorial staff collected information and will tell you how to choose a quality sweet cherry without worms and what you should pay attention to.
The main signs of quality and ripe cherries without worms:
It must be without visible dents, cracks or any other visible defects.
The lack of shine on the surface of the berries indicates that the sweet cherry was picked quite a long time ago. So it is better to buy the ones that shine and shimmer in the sun.
The fruit should not be soft, because such a sign indicates that the berries have begun to rot from the inside. A good quality sweet cherry has a firm flesh.
Cherries should only be bought with a stalk. They should be green and supple, not dry. If the stalk is missing, it means that the cherry may have been attacked by various bacteria inside.
