You know I have a thing for weird fruit. Wild food that tastes like candy is my dream. Whether I'm up North in Haluburton snacking on blackberries or Spikenard (I'll explain another day), eating cacaco fruit in St. Lucia or everyone's fave rambutans in Hawaii- there is something special about very, very strange fruit.
When I was sent a link to the film trailer for Fruit Hunters- I knew that I loved it before I even saw this:
I turns out that I knew someone, my dear friend Vanessa, who knew someone- Mark Slutsky, the writer on this film. So lucky, duck me- I had the opportunity to chat with Mark about this movie, weird Hawaiian fruits, mango auctions, Italian fruit savers with amazing names and people obsessed with fruit. Watch!
The film opens this weekend in Toronto and Montreal and how much you show your love will be a big part of how long, far and wide it will be shown. GO SEE IT!
Have a great weekend!
