Opened since October of last year, Fruit Prints Ja is creating a craze with its refreshing and delicious arrangements.

It's the brainchild of Northern Caribbean University student Samantha-Lee Davis, who innovatively makes assortments for all purposes and occasions

Davis is very skilful with the knife, carving beautiful designs into some of nature's most luscious candies. She has been making the edible gifts as a pastime activity since she was 13 years old. Now, at 22, the self-taught entrepreneur has decided to share her talent with a wider audience and reap some profits.

She explained to Food that an ever-growing admiration for the culinary field fuels her efforts. In addition, an appreciation for colours and decor has fed her passion over the years and inspires her to continue producing the products.

"I'm absolutely in love with what I do and I enjoy every part of it. I used to do it for fun for weddings and parties, but I've never considered do it professionally until recently. Now, I just want to continue to grow and, hopefully, get a physical location soon," she explained.

The mixture of fruits are perfect for anytime of the day and will, of course, provide the necessary vitamins such and C and E that your body needs.They first appeal to the eyes, then invite you into an enchanting moment to manipulate the sense of touch, simply to relish and appreciate the curves of each design. The unforgettable aromas of fresh fruits and sweet flavourings, such as chocolate and sprinkles, or a bottle of chilled wine for those who'll enjoy a spirited approach to the joyous moment are other factors that heighten the euphoric experience for those who want to indulge in delicious pleasures.

"In addition to the edible arrangements, I also make kebabs and strawberry boxes that come with a bottle of wine, but that depends on your taste. I just aim to always be as creative as much as possible," she said.

Strawberry roses are Davis' favourite and one your taste buds will also find just as appetising and irresistible. You'll certainly find the organically sweetened baskets or bouquets that are artfully arranged in a keepsake container and gorgeous cups as feel-good treats and snacks. Or maybe you prefer a cup of your favourite fruits, done to your likings. Customising your healthy snack option is also possible, making it even more exciting to devour the wholesome goodness.

Currently, Fruit Print Ja offers special deliveries in and around the Kingston area.

So, go and get your refreshing arrangement. For more details, contact Fruit Print Ja at 876-897-6078 or visit its social media page at fruitprints_ja_.
