The peel of Sha Guo is slightly rough, the peel is bright and full, and it will feel very firm when you gently press it with your hands. This kind of sand fruit is more delicious. If there are insect eyes or black on the surface of the fruit peel place, it should be the fruit that has been broken, and some fruit skins are wrinkled, and the folds will become more when pressed gently on the skin. Such fruit is not fresh, it may be placed Due to time or picking and transportation reasons, it does not taste as crisp and sweet as sago, so try not to buy it.

Some have heads, and the smaller fruit may be immature and taste more sour, and the small fruit is not suitable for eating, because it will be gone after two bites, and the taste will not be satisfied. Time to find a big pick.
