It turned out to be just his sort of life in Melbourne Florida a little three room mini apartment to himself, and down on the strip, five different bars where you had women going around in bathing suits. In the backyard, his mother’s new husband had grown a miraculous tree, a lemon trunk grafted with orange, tangerine, satsuma, kumquat, and grapefruit limbs, each bearing its own vivid fruit. Every morning, Jeff would go out and fill his arms, and squeeze himself a pitcher of juice, thick and sun hot. That house was good for his mother, too.

I reach for more milk, following my instinct, and fill the blender to the brim to compensate for all the extra fruit I added. Who knew that blending fruit would be this exciting? I watch all the bright, colorful pieces of fruit stacking up in the blender, looking like a beautiful mosaic. Rebecca Carvalho

He managed to find some mango varieties on the outskirts of Manila that he thought people might appreciate in Florida.
