I actually do buy fruit from United States. I believe their ethics on growing fruit are the same as ours, unlike China, so I buy grapes, and cherries from US. I also buy mandarins from Israel. It is really only the Asian imported fruits, plus Mexican, that I would not buy due to reading how they are grown.

At the moment the cherries and grapes from U.S. are excellent and cherries, although very expensive, are far better than ours. We probably export our best!

Only Australian for me.
Yes I do.
There is an argument that the carbon footprint of the food miles involved in buying overseas fruit is less than buying local fruit out of season that has been refrigerated for months.
I am not sure where my fruit comes from. It probably does say the country of origin somewhere, but unless I have the time, I don't look. I haven't had time for a proper shop for a while now. It is just a matter of buying a few things here and there for meals. I haven't bought any grapes or cherries for a while. What we buy is very much governed by cost, so if it is expensive, we wouldn't be buying it anyway, no matter what the country of origin is.
Not that I'm aware of.

I generally don't buy overseas fruit and vegetable - its a wonder Trump hasn't put a tariff on them to us! I will think about the carbon foot print point - but many of y have said the cherries and grapes taste good... hummmm - what about herbicides etc?
Only if Aussie fruits unavailable.
USA quality I've found always to be good.

On many times' there, never had 'bad' food of any description.
I only buy Australian (and preferably local to me and in season) unless I'm really desperate.
