At the grocery store the other day in Chiang Mai I notice d a familiar little sticker saying: Washington Apple. Just another example of my two homes getting mixed together (like this and this).
I really don’t understand the point, however, of shipping Granny Smith and Red Delicious apples halfway around the world…especially when they’re being imported to a place that has fresh fruit like this all year round:
Clockwise from top left: green mango, cherry tomatoes, dragon fruit and mangosteen. All significantly better than apples.
