Email from a friend .....


Chinese new year is drawing near. When buy Chinese oranges please beware of the worms inside. These worms are very similar to the texture of the orange and therefore can only be observe if you look carefully (long sighted person may not notice).

The Chinese government had in fact made effort to destroy hundreds of tons of these oranges and compensate the farmers for these. But however some culprit may still sell it illegally. That's why we need to be careful.

Whether the worms is harmful to the human body or not is still questionable. But generally if few numbers are consumed it should not make any harm according to doctors. It is advisable to be careful about it.

BEWARE OF CNY ORANGES FROM CHINA .WORM INSIDE THE ORANGES.

The worms are fruit fly maggots. If you look at the skin of the mandarin and find a blackish spot-like a hole, then it indicates that the fruit fly has laid its eggs in the mandarin. Its typically the same for other grapefruits (pamelos) as well.
