Spring has signaled return of the fruit stands, little islands of spherically-contained naturally sugary fruitplosions and fruitruptions all nurtured to fruition by a little bit of warm weather.

Urban street fruit is faring very well these days. In most Manhattan neighborhoods, you don’t have to walk more than a few blocks before finding fruit you can acquire without having to enter a store. Fruit has many uses: it’s edible, you can decorate a hat with it, and when made airborne, is a thoughtful way to express your opinion of live theater.

This last one isn’t technically fruit. Those of you over the age of 35 might recognize these as vegetables, a less than popular subset of fruit. Do vegetables get short shrift in the city? Wouldn’t a broccoli and cabbage stand strategically located in Times Square help initiate veggie-phobics to the pleasures of cruciferous plants? Why isn’t a city agency addressing these questions?
