9. I think part of the problem has to do with buying produce in season.
I'm not saying this is your problem with finding good fruit, because I know sometimes it is a timing issue and a regional issue. Sometimes i think the stuff they make available off-season tastes like a tennis ball, so I don't even bother, no matter how cheap it is.

One might think that since we are able to ship food farther and faster, we'd all have a more varied diet, right? I've heard that the reverse has happened: Because we are able to ship produce more easily these days, people are more likely to stick only with the fruits and vegetables they are comfortable with (favorites) and ignore the rest.

If you are in FL, I would think there would be some good fruit you could find, at least along the lines of citrus, etc.
