My son, the seven-year-old Magician, who most recently waved his magic wand at his younger sisters and was disappointed when they did not disappear, asked how the Honey Dew gets into the Nectarine. “Is it like Magic?” he asked. I’ve been teaching my kids sleight of hand tricks; pennies held in the knuckles while showing the audience that there is nothing in the hand, and eggs disappearing behind blankets, but this was a bit out of my league. For a moment it crossed my mind to get the plastic table cloth, strap it around my neck and do a don’t do this at home, magic show. This, of course, would involve smashing a Nectarine into a Honey Dew, but I figured that doing this trick at home negated the don’t do this at home motto. Plus the cleanup and stains on the walls might elicit some boos from the audience known as my wife.
It’s not really a Honey Dew in the nectarine; I explained as my son pulled a penny from behind my ear. It’s actually a hybrid of some older varieties of green nectarine. He reached into his black top hat and pulled out two socks. You see trees sometimes throw off sports, an abnormality that makes a new kind of fruit. It’s just that this kind of nectarine tastes a bit like melon and has a texture and look like a Honey Dew. That’s why people call it Honey Dew. It’s a marketing thing. You know, people try to explain what it tastes like and use things that people already know. . . He raised his sleeve on one side to show me there was nothing inside, waved his wand and pulled his hamster out of his pocket. Too much information FruitGuy, my wife said patting me on the back.
