The Fruitguys got their start on the west coast, but now they deliver fresh fruit to homes, schools, and offices across the country. But selling produce isn't all they do: they also provide recipes, teach young people about nutrition, and demonstrate an eco-friendly business model. Come along with WHYY’s Friday Arts to learn how the FruitGuys make this all possible. Plus, you won't want to miss FruitGuys founder and chief banana, Chris Mittelstaedt, as he visits a school class in a costume befitting his title.
