There's nothing more disappointing than a sour mango or bland strawberry from a big chain supermarket. But does that mean they're less nutritious?
There are plenty of stories of people avoiding supermarkets' fresh produce - choosing local grocers, delivery boxes or farmers' markets instead.
For some, there are ethical reasons, for others it's about taste, and some believe that you're less likely to get the most nutritious produce at Coles or Woolies.
But is there any truth to the claims?
