Do you pay attention at the labels that are normally affixed on the fruits that you buy?
I normally go to this specialty fruits and vegetables store near our place and I must say that I have been contented with the quality of produce that I have been buying from them.Though the prices are kind of steep as compared to a regular supermarket, I still prefer to go there because the quality of their merchandise is better, and I’m offered numerous options.
Lately, I have been examining the fruits thoroughly and I noticed that most of them are imported. I know, this is prevalent almost everywhere around the US except for some states with temperate climes.
I see Costa Rica, Italy, New Zealand, Guatemala, Mexico, Australia, Philippines (on some pineapples) to name a few. Now, it led me to think that indeed America is dependent.
What do we grow locally? Oranges and apples perhaps?
