I agree fruit tastes nothing like it used to , remember as a child you would get a whole watermelon cut it up and sit out on the steps eating it with the juice dripping down your face, and pineapples how tangy they were, don't know what they are doing with the stuff but its not good, I buy and eat less fruit then I used to.

Fruit tastes nothing these days as it is picked early and ripened in storage or it is hit with some gas to ripen it quicker. You get it home and it goes off in a day. Rubbish. I eat less fruit these days due to the tastelessness and waste and i buy organic if possible.

My husband buys fruit etc: Bananas, apples and oranges. No flavour in apples and the bananas only last a few days before the skin starts to go black. I use to eat a lot of fruit, but not anymore.

I think that fruit in supermarkets have no taste as they've been frozen and stored before finally making it to the store. I'm sure if you ate something start after being picked it would have plenty of flavour.

the fruit is picked green, then gassed, forced ripened, heavily poisoned for the bugs, then when we get it weeks after it has been picked, thus there is not much nutritional value left in the fruit and veges.No wonder cancer is increasing in today's society. I try to grow most of my own fruit and veges.

Well said. We are lucky that we live near some orchards who sell direct to the public and their fruit is lovely.
