Mushy Peaches

September 2, 2006


Grown to Be Seen ... NOT Eaten

Have you ever had the unpleasant experience of biting into a delicious-looking peach, such as these, and ending up with a mouth full of tasteless mush? Well, I have, and it has happened one too many times for me.

Here is my question of the day. American fruit growers, why do you continue to hoodwink American consumers into purchasing your picture perfect fruit, such as these peaches, when they are unfit for human consumption? And by the way, how do you grow peaches that are beautiful to look at and disgusting to eat? Since your peaches are grown to be seen, not eaten, I have used my digital camera to capture their picturesque beauty before their trip down the garbage disposal.

These peach beauties are home-grown, in the U.S. of A. as their label states. They have spent months in orchard sunshine, precious Arab fuel was expended to take them to market, a customer spent hard-earned dollars to purchase them from a supermarket, and now they are traveling down the drain, as they were too mushy and tasteless for human consumption.

I am “fed up”, so to speak, with mushy peaches and mushy pears too. The grocery market where I purchased these peaches does not usually sell inferior fruit, so I was quite surprised. They WILL hear from me, with pictures, the next time I go there.
