Best Fruit Now!

I found a great site about what's the best fruit to buy right now.     Tommy K, the author of the site,, is in the wholesale fruit and vegetable business in Philadelphia.  I wonder if he supplies the Italian market.  Best Fruit Now has a sortable list about what's good for the month of January.   He likes Asian pears, Apples, Oranges, Star Fruit, and Grapefruit.  He's not so keen on Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries.

Also, he gives tips on buying fruit:
  • Don't buy wrinkled, "antique fruit"
  • Don't buy bruised fruit
  • Don't buy berries that are leaking at the bottom
In another section, he talks about Fruits from New Jersey.  Yup, Snookie's home is the Garden State and received that moniker for truck fruits and vegetables.
