Fresh Fruit

What is your favorite fruit? Mine changes from time to time, but I enjoy most of what can be termed common fruit. Apples, bananas, citrus. Even grapes. We are fortunate in this country that fresh fruit has always been available. And at prices most families can easily afford. Now we export more than most countries consume. Look at China. Until the early 1990’s bananas were one of the few fruits that the Chinese had easy access to. Two things changed. Living standards rose and America started exporting more fruit. The trend continued until now. Another change. China is now producing more of its own fruit. Some I’m not familiar with. What is Dragon Fruit and Durian? I’m more familiar with what I can grow. Anyway, fruit is good for you wherever it comes from.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner
