Fruit Hunter and Executive Director, Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers
I am always surprised to read so much about fruit growing around the world. We are not alone. Those of us to specialize in tropical fruit exist in almost all countries. One of the worlds banana experts, Markku Häkkinen lives in Finland. I guess being in the middle of winter in Finland would make one want to go to a tropical place to work. My point is that no matter where we are there are those dedicated to growing, studying and eating rare tropical fruits. The percentage of increased interest in fruit hunting is tremendous. We are lucky to be in this industry at this time of history. Lets make the best of it and move forward together so the world can enjoy the fruits of our labor.
