I was at ActiveEdge during lunch the other day, when Diane discovered that her banana had been fatally bruised at the supermarket. The irresponsible fruit wranglers at Shaw’s had apparently used handling techniques that left no marks on the outer skin while doing massive internal damage, marring the inner fruit with scabbrous mushy brown spots. Diane ranted righteously for a few minutes, then consumed the remaining edible parts with an air of resignation.
It’s pure serendipity that I stumbled upon the BananaGuard on BoingBoing this Thanksgiving morning. A sturdy plastic shell keeps your banana safe from harm. It won’t protect your fruit from the nameless torturers in the back of the supermarket, but remember: vigillance starts at home! :-)
