I’m in the NE. I have some fabulous strawberries in my fridge, and went out yesterday to buy another expensive little box of the same stock.
Blueberries have been hit-or-miss this year, like most years. But I have a lot of really good ones right now.
There have been a lot of cherries on the market this year, and a lot of them have been excellent. My husband came home one day with two bags, one organic, the other conventional. The conventional were better, but both were good.
I haven’t found a really good peach yet this summer. I love peaches, but only when they are really good.
Pineapples do seem reliable. Ever since they introduced the super-sweet golden ones, we’ve bought good pineapples. My husband is the pineapple guy, but I think he both sniffs them and makes sure he can remove a leaf before picking one out.
Apples are better than ever, mostly because there are so many more varieties in the marketplace than there used to be. But it’s too early for apples this year. I’ve had a couple of early windfallls from my tree, but they have been under-ripe and not very good.
