Have you ever wondered about the history of the produce section of your local grocery store? I mean, has it always had such a wide variety? Have kiwis and coconuts been there as long as apples and bananas?
When you read the above picture book, you will find out the woman behind Americans’ ability to go to the supermarket and pick up starfruit, Shiitake mushrooms, chemoyas, and many more fruits and veggies. The woman is Frieda Caplan. She was a successful businesswoman as owner of a produce company, a wife, and mother of two daughters. The above picture book tells her story. Hopefully after you read it you and your family will be more willing to expand your eating horizons with exotic foods that God has made that are found native to other countries. It just makes me wonder, what else is out there that I don’t know about?
