Fruit controls
« on: November 20, 2018, 09:27:46 pm »
Does someone has an opinion about fruit controls?
I refer to these police officers that block you from carrying fruit to an are which is highly productive on fruit
For example, if you travel to California they inspect you if you are carrying fruit to avoid bad bugs or flies to crops.
Isn't this another way to avoid plague or "bacteria". Do you think this does more harm than good?
I think we are making fruit less resilient against plague but I'm not sure if this is good or bad for us. It has a lot of points of view.

I can sympathize with the fruit grower.  Don't have the facts, but presumably, orchards can be decimated by certain bugs introduced artificially from other areas of the world.  And I think it has to do with cosmetics too, say if a bug has blemished the skin, thus reducing it market value.
