Summer Produce: Gabriele Marewski Explains How to Snag the Good Stuff

And in our neck of the woods, summertime means tropical fruit season, so we should all be getting our fill of mango, Thai guava, coconuts and all those delicacies that people in the Northeast would kill for.

So, to make sure we're getting the choicest stock in the produce bins, we spoke to Gabriele Marewski, owner of Paradise Farms for some tips on picking the best of the herbivorous bunch.
