30 Fascinating Photos That Reveal What Food Looks Like Before Harvest Time | True Activist

BY: Brianna Acuesta

It’s crazy how little we know about the origins of our food.

When people say that humans often don’t know what is in the food they consume, they’re usually talking about highly processed foods found at the store or at fast food restaurants. What many people don’t think about, however, is that the origins of the healthy food they eat can be just as bizarre as the processed products.

Below are photos of foods that are grown around the world that most people have never seen in their natural element before. These photos give a startling insight into the world of food that many ignore, even when it comes to healthy food items.

    Beautiful photos. Am I the only one turned on? I must be sick… lol!

    We had a giant Fuerte avocado tree in our complex years ago. It was very dangerous to walk beneath it. A neighbor was struck and injured by a large fruit which fell from great height. Fortunately, it didn’t hit his head.

    Almond groves dotted the landscape in my childhood. We loved to eat the soft, green fruity nuts before they hardened. They have a mild almond flavor and are very juicy.

      Green almonds are soft and juicy? Where are THEY sold? Point me in the right direction!

      You are not sick, Robert. Did you know that food evolved to be alluringly attractive to humans– so we would distribute their seeds for them? See the gorgeous documentary The Botany of Desire.

      • Robert A. Vella

        Thank you, I was feeling ashamed of myself… lol! I’ve never seen green almonds for sale commercially. Us kids were lucky there were so many trees around to munch on. California was a Garden of Eden back then. Fruit trees were everywhere – black and green figs (yum), loquats (yum, yum), plums, apricots, lots of citrus, and so much more.

    PISTACHIOS is one of my favorite foods. I didn’t know how it looks like before. Love the post and thank you 🙂
