The Ripe Time
Have you ever eaten a bitter carrot or a bland tomato? When a fruit or vegetable is harvested has a HUGE impact on its flavor. If root vegetables like carrots are picked too soon, they are often bitter as the sugars haven’t had a chance to develop to give it that lovely sweet flavor. Depending on if it’s a flower or a leaf, there are different harvesting times for herbs to ensure they pack the best punch taste-wise. The time of day can impact quality as well. Early morning is the best time to pick certain crops as it guarantees sweeter, crisper and juicier produce!
