* It has been a tough year for apples. The harvest has been poor and many of the fruit have marked skin. Although they look unappetising, the insides are bright and clean, and the apples are perfectly good to eat.

** Double fruit whammy this week. The bananas are greener than we'd like. Store them in a closed paper bag with a ripe banana, apple or pear, and they will ripen more quickly. For more tips on how to store and look after your fruit and veg, check out our blog post.
