Florida produce

Down here in South Fl the produce at Publix in particular but also Walmart/Target/Winn Dixie is woefully poor both in quality and diversity. Today I went to Publix to get salad items, there were no radishes, sugar snap peas, avocados, or anything interesting to put in a salad, then I looked at the rest of the produce and realized I could not get interesting fruit, today no mangoes, I never see rhubarb, passion fruit, kiwis, berries other than strawberries, blueberries and occasional other berries. I type of pear, I type of cantalope etc.

Why are we so neglected down here, you can barely get any local produce, the oranges and grapefruits are either Mexican or from Calif, I know it's not always season for things but surely the supermarkets could make more effort or maybe it's a demand thing?
