    So I get home and the first thing I do is cut up a Florida orange eat it. What a complete disappointment. California's oranges are so much better. The Florida oranges are so juicy. Now, you would think a juicy orange would be awesome, it's not. They are all juice and no flesh. I would take a bite and just get a mouthful of juice.

    I think that is why I never see Florida oranges, all the oranges in Florida are bred for juicing. I am guessing it is only when they have an overflow that they send them to stores. It makes sense, orange juice is where the profit is, not regular oranges.

    Well, that is my rant, from now on I will stick to California oranges. At least California does something right.

We processed Tomatoes into canned fruit and probably juice as well. Did you know tomatoes are fruit?
    Yes, tomatoes are a fruit but it's difficult to stop thinking of them as a vegetable.

    How about figs? Is a fig a fruit or a flower? If you do a search you will see that there can be some disagreement. I think it may be a fruit-flower. One source says it's made up of many fruiting flowers.

    After working in a citrus processing plant, I worked for a short time as a long distance truck driver delivering orange juice to California. Then, of course, truck loads of California oranges get delivered to Florida. Imagine all the energy and manpower used to swap oranges for orange juice, back 'n' forth across the country.

    You are right on Tomatoes. As to Figs, that I never checked. Check out Strawberries and learn they are not berries. But not to say you don't know it. Bananas are berries.

    This is how science determines what is a fruit, a berry and a bean. Seems crazy to me too.
