my friend and i both work at the same grocery store. we are fruit mold experts. heirloom grape tomatoes rot differently than larger heirloom tomatoes. nectarines, plums, and peaches all mold at different rates. lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits all turn to dark green penicillin dust. rotten sweet potatoes smell far worse than rotten russet potatoes. rotting salad smells like wet earth.
eventually i want to do a watercolor series on rotting produce without weirding out my co-workers.
