A few newly created fruit.
Yes, I know that fruits are the means by which many plants disseminate seeds. Many plants bearing edible fruits, in particular, have propagated with the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship as a means for seed dispersal and nutrition, respectively; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Including my parents.
So why should my nose get out of joint because we have a few new fruits? Because its odd. It's Dolly the Sheep all over again.
