I had allergies to raw fruit as a kid. My lips would swell and the back of my throat would get very itchy. At first we thought it was just the rind/skin of the fruit...especially with peaches, but it happened with the flesh of the fruit as well....unless the fruit was dried, cooked or canned. It did not happen with bananas, melons, or just the flesh of the citrus fruits. In my early twenties, I was determined to try introducing fresh fruit into my diet ... little by little.
today I think it was the pesticides they used then.
I would ask if you've ever had the same reaction with organic fruit.
