These delicious peaches and nectarines were grown in California USA and shipped to Australia…only to be thrown out.
We received about 50… only about 5 needed to be thrown out. The rest were firm and great eating and gave some struggling people a rare treat.
So, there you have it…American taxpayers subsidising US fruit growers to have their product binned in Australia. In a crazy twist of economics, this sort of waste actually adds to the Gross Domestic Product of both the US and Australia. Truly bizarre.
