Explains the taste.

Uh-oh! It's readily available and cheap. The big biotech industries aren't going to like this one bit.

Is that an apple in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

Well they tempt you, man, with silver
And they tempt you, sir, with gold
And they tempt you with the pleasures
That the flesh does surely hold
They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man I ain't going for that...

Not to worry.

The Feds will need to regulate this "readily available and cheap" product with the usual results: scarcity and higher costs with potentially lower quality thrown in. The good news will be how much sweet lobbying/campaign cash can be bled from the industry.

Fruit tree. Another job Americans just won't do?

That's one less colorful clump of cells to be cannibalized by Planned Parenthood's Mengele division.
