    I live in a climate with a year-round growing season. There is fruit in the backcountry. But it is only available for a short time. Nearly every plant out there in the backcountry technically has fruit, but only two or three species that I can think of have fruit that is almost palatable to eat.

    The native people who lived here before Western contact ate acorns and seafood mainly.

    Again I say, if you want to be fruitatarian then more power to you . But do not think that doing so means you're following in some paleo forefather footsteps, because you're not. Fruitatarian is only possible with modern agricultural practices.
    Really interesting info! I have heard there still are uncontacted people in PNG.

Why is this flawed logic?
    Go to any ecosystem that is untrammeled by man and you will not see an environment with large swaths of edible fruit trees with fruit available every day of the year. You will see a tree here that has fruit for this period each year, another that has nuts at some other time of year, another with edible blossoms, maybe a grove that is really productive over there, maybe nothing for miles over there and always with some period of the year when none of it is palatable or edible.

    Thing is, we can eat every creature that bleeds no matter what species of plant it specializes in eating. Even koala bears.

    I like my koala bears deep fried, buffalo style. How do you eat yours?

    Wait! Don't go! I think we were just starting to hone in on an answer to your question. This whole alien angle was something that I hadn't considered before. Maybe it was the aliens that took all the fruit trees that were growing on this planet 20,000 years ago.
