I can CREATE (and populate) a 2D array using something like this:

$fruits = array ( "fruits"  => array ( "a" => "orange",
                                       "b" => "banana",
                                       "c" => "apple"
                                       ),
                );

How the heck do I APPEND to an existing 2D array?

$fruits = array ( "fruits"  => array ( "a" => "orange",
                                       "b" => "banana",
                                       "c" => "apple"
                                       ),
                );

All you need to do is specify the first dimension first and it works like a normal array:

$fruits['fruits'][] = 'mango';

Or:

$fruits['fruits']['d'] = 'mango';

didn't notice it was an associative array at first.
