For the city-dweller, plastic wrapping has become as much a part of the way we eat fruit and vegetables as the skin of the thing itself.

Instead of pulling from the soil or plucking from a tree; we squeeze our produce from mesh bags, tear it from cellophane, unwrap it from protective layers of foam. We un-peel stickers, rub off wax and untangle elastic bands.

Trimmed and polished, sealed and stamped, this is freshness as we know it.
