  2. To me the only good thing about summer is all the delicious fruit – except for mangoes, which I can’t stand. Can’t wait for the blood plums to come in season, drool.

  3. Love stone fruit. Am allergic to oranges. Hubby went for a year eating pineapple for his arthritis (have you any idea how expensive it is out of season) and didn’t see any improvement.
