Every day as a kid, my mom would meet me and my brother at the bus stop with a special treat. At 3:45 each afternoon she would surprise us with a different, unique, exotic fruit. I remember with joy tasting a star fruit, a kumquat, lychee, mango, pomelo, durian fruit, persimon, blood oranges and cara cara navels. Our special outings on weekends involved heading over to Sue’s market to stock up on new fruits for the week. The different tastes were tantalizing and I remember one year we wrote poems about all the different fruits.
