Why Love's Edible Plants
Fruit quality is improved when a fruiting plant is shocked by a cold snap or a dry spell with fruit on. The plant is essentially packing the lifeboats in case conditions don't improve, so it jams sugars, vitamins and minerals into the fruit.
Supermarket fruit isn't even attached to the plant when it ripens. Small wonder it's bland and not especially nourishing. You just can't beat fruit that's so ripe it falls into your hand with the lightest tug.
The only thing sweeter is knowing it was all tax free!
