from major vendors it has often been chilled to the point that it has been killed.
Thier recommendation was to use farmers markets as often as possible to reduce the chance of buying
pre-chilled (almost frozen) supplies.
Afterwards, I took notice of the day to day fruit I buy and they appear to be right. Stone fruits, apples etc just dont seem to last on the shelf the way they used to.
Hope this helps your salad problem somewhat in the future
