While at the store today, I heard a young girl ask her mom about where the produce came from. I loved the response because it was very informative.
|Green and yellow peppers are raised in many continents.|
A container of strawberries listed their growing site as Oregon. A smaller container of blueberries arrived from Washington. Navel oranges came from California, tangerines from Mexico, and grapefruit was brought in from Florida.
Whole coconuts were brought in from Hawaii, while some of the bananas were grown in South America. She told her daughter the Haas avocados were a product from Peru.
|These pumpkins were raised on a small farm in Fernley NV|
