Considering how easy it is for one to go out to the store and buy ripe fruit from parts of the world they themselves may never see, it’s no wonder most of us don’t know what certain fruits and vegetables look like when they’re growing. It’s surprisingly jarring to discover how some of these come to be–it’s like finding out what a celebrity looked like as a kid, then learning that they grew up in a tree instead of a house. Something like that. You’ll see!
1.) Pineapples grow on the ground.
2.) Brussels sprouts grow on stalks.
3.) Watermelons grow on ground-level vines.
4.) Strawberries grow from flowers.
5.) Bananas grow on the flower of an extremely big plant.
6.) Artichokes grow as flowers.
7.) Pomegranates grow on trees.
8.) Chickpeas grow in fuzzy pods.
9.) Kiwis grow on vines.
10.) Olives grow on trees.
Wait! What? These don’t just appear in Safeway? That’s so crazy! Next thing I know you’ll be telling me that chickens aren’t born as nuggets, right?
