We'll look at finding the best produce and why picking a juicy peach can be a challenge.
It's a classic problem in agriculture -- how to produce fruits and vegetables
that taste good, look good on the market shelves, and can survive the often

food writer Russ Parsons, author of the new book "How
to Pick a Peach: The Search for Flavor From Farm to Table," about
whether there's any hope for folks seeking farm-fresh flavor in this day
