Buying fruits at Japanese supermarkets

I am pretty sure only Japanese put a bunch of background and history to their produce… or maybe I'm wrong?

  1. He-he, exactly. That is a good excuse to be illiterate.

    I always thought that Japanese people has Texassian complex.
    They do like everything big :lol: That makes me think that fruits
    and veggies sold in their stores aren't healthy, cuz overfertilized.
    BTW, it is too hard to find here an apple of regular size and with
    normal oxidation. It is impossible to buy baby carrots, normal sized
    grapes :lol:

    ewww...

    1. LOL, they make it big so it is pretty and sweeter so they can sell at a higher price.
      They did not put more fertiliser, but they cut off other fruits from the same plant so all the goody nutrition will go into that single fruit that remains (and get big)

  2. i remember seeing one talk show stating that there was ever situation where these information were false... when they did a deep check :P not that all were false... it's just ridiculous to buy a "sqaure" watermelon as well which taste the same as a normal round one.

    1. Haha maybe they exaggerated some parts :P
      Yes I saw the square watermelon and my friend, who tasted it before, admitted that it tastes exactly like a normal watermelon, nothing special!
      But they usually buy it to decorate, not to eat...

  3. In America, there are specialty health stores who post background and/or history to their 'organic' produce.

    1. That's good, because it would convince me more about how organic they are… but still… they can lie about this can't they?
