John Lapide & his brother-in-law Joseph Fumusa were living the American Dream. As Italian immigrants, they never believed that they would one day be business owners. But, in 1946 that’s what they became when they opened F & L Produce in Brooklyn, NY. F & L Produce was a seasonal produce business selling mainly watermelons and other types of fruit and vegetables. John’s son, Larry, worked along side his Father & Uncle as a teenager on weekends and during summer vacations. When he decided he wanted to go into the family business full time he was instrumental in growing the business and in the mid 1950s F & L Produce relocated into a larger store in the Brooklyn Terminal Market. With the increased square footage, they had the opportunity to broaden the range of products they carried and began selling plants and flowers for Easter & Mother’s Day and live trees and greenery during Christmas season.
