How to Pick out Tomatos and Cucumbers


The best tomatoes are completely free of blemishes and bruises and should be a deep, bright red. A good tomato is firm enough to resist pressure, but not so hard that it doesn’t react to your touch. Finally, test the tomato for its scent. Smell the tomato up by the stem; it should have a strong, sweet, earthy odor.


It should feel heavy for its size. Squeeze the cucumber gently. It should not yield to light pressure. Examine the skin of the cucumber. It should be taut and thin, not heavy and waxy like many store-bought cucumbers are. Lastly, don’t select the largest one.  The larger ones tend to be less flavorful, so go for one of the smaller ones for better flavor.
