Orange you glad we're back for more in 2014? We put fruit facts into the limelight this week and cherry-picked some pretty juicy trivia. Colin gets to the core of fruit name origins, Chris grapples with a hybrid fruit challenge, and Karen puckers up to the miracle fruit. And don't just split yet, Dana's got an a-peeling quiz about bananas. It's a fruit party, so we're all raisin the roof.

ALSO: Lynda.com teacher quiz, tweeting sharks

great show. was surprised about lemons being a hybrid. I'll have to try that miracle fruit!

Oh, when are more store items going to be available? Need that Beaver Butt Pin! and probably a t-shirt.

Oranges are hybrids too! Of pommelos and mandarins!

As you spoke of singular words that were misconstrued as plurals, I thought I'd throw in my two cents on the pronunciation of the French word "ananas." I don't know why (who really understands all the intricacies of French grammar anyway?), but fun fact! A large part native French speakers pronounce the "s" at the end of "ananas" even if it is singular.

I'm a little behind in listening to your episodes, so I don't know if you all will see this but I just thought I'd drop a line. Great show, as always!
