Since the subject is Fruit... pathetic how about this one:
I'm pretty sure there is a whole swathe of people in this country- generations even, that don't even know what a good peach tastes like. When I was a kid, and up into the 80's you'd better have a roll of paper towels handy when you bit into a ripe peach. Oh, you can get them year-round almost, but they are insipid and hard.
It's gripe of mine about fruit. Apples, bananas, limes have stayed pretty good while others have declined in quality while maintaining an exceptional appearance and availability.
Occasionally, I'll get one or two peaches that are ok, but then they're only half-ripe and will get moldy if you don't eat them within a day or two.
