The Sweet Smell of the Season

I don’t know when people started to use touch to test ripeness. Smell your fruit, people.
It should be pungent, like this mango. You’d have to be a Dustbuster to smell a mango from Guatemala at your neighborhood Whole Foods Market.
If you can smell your fruit, you won’t end up with a mealy, dry peach or a metallic-tasting mango.
If this isn’t a reminder I don’t know what is.
