Tropical Treats In Arizona

If you live in the Phoenix metro area, you’re in for a tropical treat.

As we near the end of the citrus season here, other tropical fruits
are becoming available at local stores. I’m particular to organic
pineapple, and when I noticed it at my local Fry’s, I stocked up.
The brand is the same one carried by our now defunct local
co-op, so I feel comfortable with the choice.

Our local Safeway as well as Sunflower Market also have an
abundant selection of organic bananas and mango… all reasonably
priced.

Enjoy these tropical treats!
