If you want something to have a softer sweet flavor, you can put it in the refrigerator for a while. On the other hand, if you want a food to taste sweeter such as some fruits, you should leave it at room temperature for a while such as strawberries.

Nature Hikes with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy
Conservancy managed trails offer a wide variety of walks and experiences, many of which feature spectacular views, native plants and wild flowers, fascinating geology, glimpses of the Peninsula's history, and animal sightings. They range from easy strolls to strenuous climbs up hillsides and ridges. A limited number of trails are accessible to those in wheelchairs or strollers for small children.
Many of the trails are narrow, and you may encounter other users – hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. We encourage you to be courteous and respectful of the other users of these beautiful open spaces. Always bring water and wear adequate sun protection.
