I may become a fruit hunter

April 21, 2009

Speaking of fruits… In my travels through the wonderful world of Viddler videos I came across this video interview with Adam Leith Gollner, the author of The Fruit Hunters: A Story of Nature, Adventure, Commerce, and Obsession.

I may just have to become a fruit hunter. Sometimes I find it difficult to push the limits of my fruit purchases. If I’m ever going to enjoy some of the world’s most exotic fruits I’m going to need to put in some serious effort. Although a short interview, there is a good bit of information packed into it about the global fruit economy and why some fruits are hard to find in our local grocer. I may just have to take a gander at the book.
