We’re all told to eat five pieces of fruit and veg a day, but few of us actually manages to achieve this lofty goal. Why? Because there are so many other nice things to eat.
The weird thing is most people like fruit, because it’s sweet, succulent, juicy, and very tasty. But it turns out this wasn’t always the case.
As this video shows, fruit and veg used to look very different than it does today. Carrots were white and root-like, bananas had big seeds in them, and the sweetcorn is old is unrecognizable.
Essentially, humans have changed the very essence of various fruits and vegetables to suit our tastes. Which sounds bad, but, having seen this video, is something I’m quite grateful for.
