Choosing the Freshest Fruits Tips and Trick

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

If you’ve ever bitten into a piece of fresh, ripened fruit, you would never want to reach for any other kind of fruit again! There’s simply something about the sweet and succulent about ripened fruits that make them so distinct and delicious. Best of all, they are packed full of nutrients that will nourish you and keep you going throughout the day.

How to pick fresh ripe fruits

Grocery stores are packed with all kinds of fruit, all brightly coloured, from watermelon and durian to grapes, apples and oranges. However, it can be a little tricky to find the freshest fruits to indulge in. But fear not! Our staff here at Gift Hampers Hong Kong are more than happy to help you find the best fruits in your area. Follow our super easy tips so that you can choose fresh ripe fruits for yourself, your family and friends.

  • Ripe fruits should feel heavier in your hand, so don’t be afraid to compare them by weighing in your hands or with a scale, if available. Heavy fruits are an indication of more water weight, meaning it’s packed full of moisture and is juicier. Fruits that are lighter than the average may be an indication of dryness.
  • Fresh fruits should also be quite dense. Give it a gentle squeeze to check. If it feels plump and full, you may have nabbed yourself the perfectly succulent fruit to bag home. In contrast, fruits that feel slight soft or sounds hollow may not be the fruit you’d like, and you may want to reconsider making your purchase.
  • When you look for ripe fruits, the smell can say a lot about it. Generally speaking, try to sniff out fruits with a stronger aroma. If it smells sweet, that means it’s perfectly ripe and ready to eat. Those that are only slightly sweet or have barely any aroma are not an attractive buy.

Where to find fresh fruits and how

In Hong Kong, you can pretty much get fruit anywhere. Supermarkets stock fresh produce, though if you go there in the morning, you may need to wrestle a bit with other customers to get yours! You will find a wider variety of fruit at wet markets, where a whole floor is usually dedicated to fruit and veg. You could also find very affordable fresh fruit at wholesales markets. However, it can be a little tricky finding your way around and trying to get all your favourite fruit. Supermarkets and markets also tend to be quite crowded and doesn’t allow you a lot of time to gather all your fruits.
