Biblical Fruits ...

It's Christmas day, perhaps you went to church and heard the pastor preach about the Shalom that Christ brings to our fallen world. You might've even read from Isaiah 11:6-8, describing the world of shalom to come:

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.
The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest.

If you are like me and constantly feel sad our ever degrading society, take joy in that the commercial world has already taken that concept and applied to fruits! Their latest invention ... GRAPPLE! Yes! Grape + Apple = Grapple! Just imagine, the age long hostility between grapes and apples finally redeemed by modern technology. Now you can enjoy grapes and apples together ... oh ... we should all grapple together!

Notable mentions (less redeeming hybrid fruits) include Nectaplum (Nectarine +plum), Passion Popper Kiwi-berry (miniacturized kiwifruit), and peacotum (peach + apricot + plum).

Speaking of hybrids ... don't forget about the Liger or the Tigon. They are real! Merry Christmas!
