Selection of raw fruit and vegetables
Funny Face 1 - Meet Mrs Pink. Can you guess what her face is made of? Any idea? The pink fruit with the tiny black seeds is actually Dragon fruit. Very mysterious and tropical, but in season for us right now. The eyes are sliced bananas, nose is a bit of green apple and the teeth are five fresh blueberries sliced in two. Yum.
