Tejocote fruit is kind of a big deal, unbeknown to me

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is taking comments until Nov. 28 on a pest risk analysis on the subject of imports of fresh tejocote fruit from Mexico. Considering the fact that I don't have the slightest idea of what "tejocote fruit" looks or tastes like, I was surprised to see a protesting comment about the effort to bring the fruit to the U.S.

We are one of the largest growers of Tejocotes in Southern California; we have been growing them here for the last 9 to 10 years. The importation of Mexico’s Tejocotes into the United States would not only ruin the market place for them it would cause significant financial damage to my business.
