Not all oranges are orange.

Most commercial fruits are clones.

Most commercial fruits are clones.

Japanese Yubari cantaloupes are the most expensive fruit in the world; two melons once sold at auction for $23,500.

Cherry farmers hire helicopter pilots to air-dry their trees after it rains so that the cherries don’t split open.

The apple you’re eating might be a year old.

Apples are for sale in grocery stores and farmers markets year round, even though their harvesting season (at least in the U.S.) only lasts a few months in the fall. HOW CAN IT BE? Well, increasingly sophisticated cold storage technology means it’s possible (and/or likely) that the crisp, juicy apple you’re eating in August 2013 was actually harvested in October 2012

Another great reason to buy fruit trees from us! You can be sure you're eating the freshest fruit.

Bananas, as we know them, are in danger of being completely wiped out by disease.

Donut peaches are a natural mutant peach variety, not a human-engineered fruit.

Grapefruit can cause dangerous reactions with some prescription medications.

One pomegranate can hold more than 1,000 seeds.

Hi Everyone!! Were excited to say that we’ve entered to win the Chase Main Street Mission Grant the award is $150,000 and we could really use the money to help a lot with our business.

papaya

 

Get smoother, younger looking skin by eating more of this sweet, buttery-textured fruit: papaya.

Research shows that eating a diet high in carotenoid-rich foods -- like papaya -- helps boost people's defenses against the sun's damaging rays. And that helps skin fight off wrinkles.

Best Face Forward
In a study of people between the ages of 40 and 50, those who had the highest skin levels of carotenoids had the smoothest, youngest looking complexions. Their furrows and wrinkles were not as numerous or as deep. And researchers speculate that it was because of the high antioxidant value of the carotenoids circulating in the bloodstreams of the younger looking group. Carotenoids are a family of antioxidants that include body helpers like beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin -- just to name a few.

C Is for Carotenoid
Carotenoids are found in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, so papaya isn't your only source of skin-protective nutrients. Mangoes and cantaloupe are good sources. So are tomatoes, watermelon, and grapefruit. And you'll want to get your fill, because your body uses carotenoids not only to maintain healthy skin but also to boost immunity along with eye and heart health. But because carotenoids perform so many functions -- and because everyday things like stress, illness, lack of sleep, and sun exposure can sap your levels — you need to eat a whole bunch of fruits and vegetables every day.

If you're looking to save money but need a new lamp, you're in luck! We'll teach you how to turn a bottle into a lamp!

Materials

A pot, vase, bottle, jug, or other vessel
A lamp kit, or you can buy the socket and lamp cord separately.
Plaster of Paris
Putty knife
Lampshade (the width of the shade should not exceed the height of the lamp base)

Directions

Assemble the lamp kit according to the instructions. If the included threaded pipe was not pre-cut, you should cut it one inch longer than the height of your vessel. Melissa skipped this step since she opted to just get the socket and cord.

Mix the plaster of Paris if you're using the lamp kit. Using a putty knife, spread it evenly on the bottom of your vessel, and center the pipe, socket side up in the pot. You may need to hold it for several minutes and let it dry for at least one hour.

Attach the harp, shade, and finial. Add a bulb and plug it in.

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

Who doesn't love Halloween? If you're like me, it's basically your favorite holiday, and you start planning early! Here is a delicious, easy Halloween treat! It's great for a Halloween party!

Ingredients

1 pound strawberries
1 package of white chocolate chips
1 edible ink pen

Directions

Wash and allow the strawberries to dry.  Set out wax paper or a silpat.  

Melt the chocolate on 50% power in the microwave for two minutes.  Stir until the bowl no longer feels warm.  Then microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted.  

Hold the strawberries by the stem and roll in the chocolate until covered.  Then gently place on wax paper.  Allow the chocolate to harden, then draw the ghost faces and/or mummy eyes.  

Now pipe white chocolate onto the mummy strawberries to look like wrappings.  You don’t have to be careful when you pipe the chocolate. I just do a combination of rotating the strawberry and looping the piping hand around the strawberry, and they turn out pretty cute.
