I am Ken Love and I have hunted for rare and unusual fruit in over 50 countries! Ask me anything!
I am Ken Love and I am a Fruit Hunter. I’ve looked for unusual fruit in more than 50 countries and spend a lot of time in South India. I'm also the executive director of Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers and President of American Culinary Federation Kona Kohala Chefs Association.
I'm joined by documentary filmmaker Yung Chang (Up The Yangzte & China Heavyweight). His new film THE FRUIT HUNTERS follows fruit hunters like myself whose passion it is to discover and preserve exotic and rare fruits.

The movie is in theaters in select cities through the end of the week via Cinedigm’s Docurama films label. http://www.docuramafest.com/fruit-hunters/
UPDATE: Hey all! Might take a little break but please keep the questions coming! Great to speak with so many fruit curious/lovers. Also just gotta plug our new documentary The Fruit Hunters starring other fruit hunters like actor Bill Pullman. Check for info above!
UPDATE 1pm EST: Back and answering!
