I am very disappointed with the freshness of produce nowadays. I just had some tomatoes from the garden and what a great difference in taste!
I remember when, during the summer, we were able to buy fresh produce that tasted good.
Now we buy tomatoes, plums peaches etc. bring them home and try to ripen them at home. Some of the start to grow mould before becoming ripe! Some never ripen at all and are almost tasteless. I have even had potatoes which have been cooked for ten (10) hours in a stew and still have crunchy bits!!!
In these days of "five a day" this is not encouraging people to eat fresh fruit and veg.
Also what will be the long term effects of eating under ripe fruit and veg? Remember BPA that was claimed to be safe by the manufacturers!!!
