Just in Lime

Limes grow on trees with white flowers which grow up to about 5m high.

Limes are PACKED with vitamins A, B & C, and also contain things called ‘antioxidants’ which help protect the body against cancer.

Lime soup is a common dish in Mexico and lime pickles are commonly eaten in India, which is also the top producer of this fabulous fruit.

At home, try squeezing line juice into a salad or onto a pancake.

If a Cranberry Bounces, is that Good or Bad?

As cranberries grow, they develop a pocket of air inside.

This means that if you drop a cranberry onto a hard surface, it will bounce like a little rubber ball. Try it next time. A cranberry which does NOT bounce is probably a bad cranberry and may have split or gone off.

Another amazing benefit of air pockets in cranberries, is that they float. When it is time to harvest cranberries (which grow in low bushes on the ground), the field is normally flooded with water which makes the cranberries float.

This makes all the cranberries float up to the surface of the water which makes them east to harvest.

All that hard work so you can enjoy a cranberry juice or muffin!

How would you dry a cherry tree after the rain?

If cherry trees get too wet when the fruit is almost ready to be picked, the fruit can split, rending the cherries worthless to the farmer. How to solve this problem?

Believe it or not, a lost of cherry farmers use helicopters to hover over each cherry tree in turn to dry it off.

If you think about it, this makes complete sense.

The helicopter acts as a HUGE FAN directly over the cherry tree. In just a few seconds the tree is dry and the helicopter can move on to the next tree. This saves the fruit from getting too wet and splitting.

It sounds crazy but it is worth a farmer paying a helicopter pilot to do this to preserve the precious cherries.

The Most Expensive Fruit in the World

You might think the most expensive fruit in the world might be something really strange from an inaccessible part of the Amazon Forest. But you’d be wrong.

The most expensive fruit in the world (so far) is the Japanese Yubari cantaloupe – which is a type of melon.

Not long ago, two of these very special melons sold for £16,000.

A normal cantaloupe melon might cost £2. So for £16,000 you could buy 8000 (EIGHT THOUSAND) normal cantaloupe melons.

Would you pay that much for the most tasty fruit in the world?

It’s a crazy world, no?!

Oranges are Yellow and Green

Brazil grows the most oranges in the world.

But, they don’t have orange skins – at least not when they’re shipped to shops.

It’s all to do with the chemical composition of the skin of the orange. When they’re ripe they’ll either still be green or may have turned a bit yellow.

Because buyers expect oranges to be orange, the green or yellow oranges are treated with a special gas called “ethylene” which turns them a nice shade of orange for the shop shelves.

Does this bother you?

Would you be ok eating or juicing a green or yellow orange?!
