A tour through a Brazilian orchard quickly turns from rustic to creepy and futuristic as a gardener displays baby guavas sealed in tiny plexiglass chambers marked with the logo of their client Camp Nectar.

I just checked in to make sure they weren’t talking about Fruit of the Loom.

Instead of embossing bananas with logos, an effort should be made to develop bananas that don’t go soft two days after purchase.

Who wants square fruit? Those ones on the display table will always be the last ones left. (If they ever get chosen.)

Garden supply places used to sell molds so you could grow stuff in shapes. Nothing really new.

Never heard of it before reading that article. Guess I led a sheltered life on the Farm.

I buy green ones; they’ll last 5-6 days, easily.

“Who wants square fruit?”

It all looks the same when it gets to your stomach. Square fruit is still just fruit, I guess.
