Snip it

Your Home and Garden - - Your Garden -

It’s gen­er­ally best to cut each fruit or vege from the stem us­ing a sharp knife, scis­sors or se­ca­teurs. Try not to pluck a fruit or tear a veg­etable off the stem with your hands, as this usu­ally dam­ages the plant. In ad­di­tion, the pro­duce you’ve picked will store bet­ter with some of the

stem at­tached. Some plants, such as lemon­grass and rhubarb, nat­u­rally break off quite eas­ily when plucked, so you won’t dam­age the plant

in this in­stance.
