The fruit, not the people!

I have always loved them. But suddenly, they are making my mouth sting and my tongue sore.

Same with me. Always loved them, but a few years ago got tongue and throat swelled up and my mouth was burning. Don't know why I should suddenly become allergic to them but been too scared to touch them since. It was quite scary.

My daughter is allergic to them too.

When it happened to me I was living in Australia, and I did wonder at the time if it could be different sprays being used that aren't used on crops sent to Europe, but I really have no idea. Apparently most come to England from Italy or Chile - Australia grow a lot of their own.
