Meet the Queen of Kiwi: the 96-Year-Old Woman Who Transformed America’s Produce Aisle
It’s the 1950s and not a single new fruit has been introduced to US markets in 90 years (since the introduction of the banana). Meet the woman who took the unmarketable Chinese gooseberry and turned it into the kiwi we all know and love. She went on to singlehandedly transform the US produce aisle, also “introducing” guavas, blood oranges, shallots, and Belgian endive. I do wonder, however, how fair it is to say that these white women “introduced” products like jicama and ginger root and and habaneros to the US. Isn’t it more accurate to say that they created a mainstream supply chain to large supermarket chains? As I continued to listen to the episode, the word “introduced” really began to bug me. When you say things like “she introduced jicama to Americans,” you’re definitely excluding people of Central American descent from the category of “American” and that bothers me. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
The Case of the Disappearing Franchise
The guest identifies herself as a “fast food detective.” I love everything about this.
Underground Aams Trade, Part 1
I definitely need a what’s app dealer for Pakistani mangoes!
From my childhood, celery was never something I avoid. It’s when I met people who hate celeries with all of their existence that I see celery isn’t always everyone’s favourite. Glad to see some proper love for celery in such special perspective. :)
