Hisashi Kawaguchi, an official at the Japan Fruit Association. A survey conducted by the association in 2014 found that the No. 1 reason people don't eat fruit every day is that it doesn't last long and they can't store it. Other top reasons are "It costs more than other food," "It's a nuisance to have to peel it before you can eat it," and "There are other foods to eat."© Mainichi Shimbun
