This kind of ties into my previous posts about garlic from china and the misunderstood prune. I bought prunes and was about half way though the bag (not all at once!) when I looked and it said "Amazin Prunes from Argentina" I'm like what the...? I was pretty sure Yuba City, California is the prune capital here and I was right after checking google. I live in California and I'm eating prunes from Argentina. I bought another bag, same brand "Amazin Prunes from U.S.A." The flavor infused prunes were from Chile. Of coarse I'm really checking now but living in California, I just assumed all the prunes would be from the U.S.. Silly me. Then I was also thinking about out of season produce. I usually don't buy imported produce that CAN be grown here (tropical fruits being different of coarse) I won't buy out of season produce from South America for example like melons. I have no issues with these countries but I also think of the resources it takes to get these items here when I can have them locally in the summer. I don't have to have them in the winter also. Thinking further I was wondering where some countries might get their produce if they don't or can't grown their own due to climate. For example do Northern European countries get a lot of produce from Mediterranean countries?
