Earlier certain fruits were available only in certain seasons. But now with widespread importing, we have an access to a wide variety of fruits all-year-round. Importing also allows us to benefit by providing different types of nutrients from a variety of soils and different farming techniques. It should always be remembered that fruit should never be cooked but should be eaten fresh and raw. The process of cooking transforms the alkalinity of the fruit to acid and also destroys most of the nutrients. Never purchase fruit in bulk as storing fruits for a longer period destroys not only its nutritional value, but also causes fungal infection of the fruits. Buy only those fruits that you are going to consume within twenty-four hours.
