This course aims to provide a historical, cultural, biological, morphological, and physiological understanding of a variety of common fruits from around the world. The course focuses on a new fruit or group of fruits each week and a broader botanical topic that relates to that fruit.
This course will provide students with a stronger biological and academic understanding of the morphology, history, and science behind various fruits. By the end of the course, students will have a wealth of knowledge regarding fruits that they may encounter throughout their lives. Students are expected to participate in various activities each week, including discussions and readings.
The course will consist of 45 minutes of lecture and 45 minute of activity or student led discussion each week. During lecture, we will cover the fruit(s) of the week and any relevant topics associated with the fruit. Discussion can be either before or after lecture, and may consist of discussing the reading(s) assigned for that week, fruit related interactive activities, or delving into student initiated conversation topics surrounding fruit. Students are expected to actively participate in the discussions.
