Hi!  We are Wil and Mariska,  the duo behind A Variety of Fruits.

Originally from South Africa, we have moved around a bit in the pursuit of fruit and to quench our thirst for adventure. In 2012 we made a big move to Mexico with our two daughters and currently, we find ourselves living, and loving it, in Valencia, Spain.

Wil is a fruit fanatic, lover of fruit, fruit evaluator, passionate fruity and all other terms one can use to describe a person obsessed with fruit. I am The Fruit Lover´s Wife with a love for wine, netball, 100% cacao chocolate, good food and cooking.

A Variety of Fruits is where we talk about new and interesting fruit varieties along with whatever is happening in our life. Wil is a Horticulturist and I am a Food Scientist, which basically means we like to explore and ask questions about new fruit and food. About life.

Thanks for being here. Hope you enjoy the read!
