Come on Kroger – that wasn’t an orange you sold me. NOT FUNNY. This naval orange was as big as a softball (really bigger) hard as a rock, the orange skin was nicely died an even orange but was so tough it was nigh impossible to peel. The inside fruit had no flavor and the segments did not separate. Conclusion. Your produce managers grew up in a food desert, no concept of what fruit tastes like, but only willing to make money passing off hard woody long storage dyed fruit as something that we are supposed to eat.
You say to me…. what gives you the right to judge fruit. I will tell you. I grew up in southern california with orange, lime, lemon trees in the back yard, loquat, pomegranate and apricots by the jillions in the neighborhood kid’s yard that we shared on a regular basis while enjoying the sun and outdoor games. Frequent trips to the orchards eating cherries right off the tree, and avocados as nice and as ripe as any i have found in the store.
Kroger may be the biggest grocer in the world, but it has become the largest “fake food” grocer as well. Shame on you.
BTW the last seed(less) watermellon you sold me was also a piece of unripe hard bitter junk. Does a corporation have a moral commitment to its consumers. I think so, you obviously do not. Bad on you Kroger.
