Summers are already here and so is the fruit season. Using fresh fruits in our diet by all means is what we all aim for.Do not limit yourself when it comes to fruits.Fruits contain lot of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and that is why they are nature’s own healthy whole foods. If you are lucky to try farm-fresh produce and taste the pure goodness of nature, do not miss out on that.
One of the less explored parts of our country, the north-east is a fruit lover’s delight during Spring season. Passion fruit, Litchi, Berries and Pineapples adorn the mountainous slopes of the seven sister states.At this time of the year, the mountainous slopes of Meghalaya are covered with thick spiky leaves peeking out of the soil. ‘Ananas’ as it is commonly known, Pineapple is still grown using age-old indigenous cultural practices in the state. That is why these fruits are free from chemical residues. And we can safely compare the Meghalayan Pineapples with any certified organic produce.
Pineapple is ranked at second spot among the Top 20 tropical fruits on earth.Many of us may not know that Pineapple is a compound fruit- a fruit that develops from many smaller fruits which fuse together around a central stalk. And be Surprised to know that Pineapple is not a pine or an apple. It’s actually a Berry. The ripe pineapple has a very strong fruity smell which makes it a sought-after fragrance for perfumes too. The lead character of popular cartoon series ‘Sponge Bob Square Pants’ lives in a Pineapple under the sea, apparently because of its fruity smell.
So, what are you waiting for? Do not miss this tasteful journey filled with freshness and lusciousness of fruits this season. Enjoy the goodness of mother nature at your table. Enjoy purity, enjoy taste.
