Default Sure, we'll just go to the secret Northeast Banana Orchard...

I'm off today, but a CW just texted me this:

A customer wanted to know if we had local bananas.

...now I know it's been a bit tropical climate-wise as of late, but really?

When I worked in the Now-Defunct Tea Store, I once had a customer ask about Canadian tea ...

I know I am in southern Ontario, dear customer, but it is still NOWHERE near the climate that tea needs.

I also get asked with some regularity where our Italian coffee beans (as in actually grown in Italy) are

There probably are some microclimates in the far south that may be able to support very small-scale grows, but...it wouldn't be worth the effort.

Yes, we have no bananas.

In a way that makes sense. I drink plenty of 'English' and 'Irish' breakfast tea, but that is in the context of where the blend was first sold at, and not where it was grown.

In the case of German Chocolate Cake, it was named after chocolate maker Samuel German from Texas. Chocolate isn't grown in the US or Germany.
