Trying a grape... taboo?

GraceW | Apr 17, 2011 01:49 PM

Growing up in my family, I always saw my parents test a grape (usually one green and one red) at the grocery store before deciding if they would purchase grapes (and which color to buy)--is this taboo?

I thought everyone did this. Therefore, I always do. But I realized--and maybe it is because of where I live now?--that I do not see anyone else do this. Is this taboo, common practice, or unusual?

Thanks for your responses. Apologies, if the practice is 'offensive' to anyone--but it has always been helpful in making a selection, so I never thought much of it.
