It's nearly summer-fruit season. Although most early apricots, like the Castlebright, are not the fullest flavored fruit, but they are available now. A sweeter bet is the Apache variety, sold by Harry Nicholas Farms, which delivers consistent flavor for this time of year. Laura Avery chats with David Karp, the Fruit Detective, who suggests picking fruit that has full color for it's variety with good aroma and just a little give in the flesh.
Laura also chats with Gloria Tamai, who brings in the first white corn of the season. Grown in the desert town of Thermal, California, this variety should be in the market until July.
Keep tasting all the new varieties of cherries too. They will be around for another five weeks.
