I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers. Seriously, looking at that striped pineapple dress in the middle is making me both hungry and sartorially inspired. Click through for more fruity fashion…
When Carole Collen of England found this rare, penis-shaped strawberry growing in her garden, her reaction was disappointment rather than excitement.
“I did think it was a bit small. It would have been nice if it grew a bit bigger,” said the 52-year-old.
How rude! I think Carole needs to work on being grateful for the strawberry penis God gave her. Size isn’t everything, Carole. Many of us would be overjoyed to have this lovely piece of dick fruit growing in our garden. I mean, if I wasn’t allergic to strawberries, I’d be happy to snack on this little fellow myself.

I love infusing my water with different flavors–lemon, lime, mint, strawberry, cucumber, oh my!–but I don’t like the little bits of soggy fruit and leaves that end up floating around in my glass. This glass flavor-infuser water bottle allows you to put your favorite fruits in their own little chamber, which gives you all of the flavor and none of the debris. How refreshing!

So apparently all it takes to create a banana peel trucker hat is a few simple knife cuts and some careful sticker placement. Now I just have to make some apple skin cargo shorts and orange peel aviators and my whole fruit basket will be ready for spring break in Cancun! [Neatorama]
This triple banana is winning. I know “winning” is a played out catchphrase at this point, but if “Bachelorette” Courtney can use it in reference to Ben Boring Flajnik, than I can use it in reference to this fabulous fruit mutation. Seriously, how did this happen? And will it ever happen again? I would really like to slice this beast and put it in my cereal. Dream breakfast. [Boing Boing]
The inventors of the tongue kiss have done it again! A new TV ad from the Association de Producteurs des Fruits, featuring a variety of fruit and positions, is so sexy, it makes The L Word look like they donâ€™t show enough nipple. Juicy, fresh, and raw, the ad is the number two hit on the industry website Firebrand.com. And it is a tasty choice, so you may want to avoid sharing it at work and save it for dessert.
