Fruits play important roles in our everyday life with their tastes, economic values, and cultural significance. Fruits’ extraordinary diversity also reflects how plants adapt to various natural ecosystems throughout their evolutionary histories. Each week, we will focus on one fruit to explore its biology, natural history, usage, symbolism, and related botanical/scientific topics, ranging from how human civilization and fruit crops have shaped each other to the chemical compounds underlying fruits’ colors and flavors.
