On a shopping trip to tesco I bought raspberries which originated in South Africa. There was a green insect in the container, I’m just curious to know what it was! It was still alive too!

Dear Curious Raspberry Lover,
This is an immature Grasshopper.  Finding live insects in organically grown produces is not uncommon.
