Fruit must ripen in order to become edible or at least in order to become something that people want to eat. The process of fruit ripening makes them softer and sweeter and produces a natural form of a chemical that is actually synthesized to make PVC. PVC is used in piping and plastic bags.

The chemical that makes plants ripen is a gaseous plant hormone called ethylene. When fruit ripens it is actually on its way to rotting. When we eat perfectly ripened fruit we are catching it just before it has ripened too far and begun the rotting process.

These types are called “plantains,” and they are separate from the edible fruit. Also, the color of banana changes as it ripens.

There are a few versions of who actually invented fruitcake – some people would often say that fruitcakes were invented by ancient Romans. However, this is not always an opinion shared by everyone. Some historians believe that the history of fruitcakes can be traced back as early as ancient Egyptians because they allegedly made fruitcakes in their time to put on the tombs of their deceased love ones.

After this era, this is where the ancient Romans come into the picture. Since fruitcakes made by ancient Egyptians remain to be a theory, a lot of people take a stand on their opinion that ancient Romans were the ones who created fruitcake wherein they combined ingredients such as pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and raisins. To be safe, we can just say that the ancient Romans created what is known now as fruitcakes.

Professionals say that if one plans to eat fruits for breakfast, he or she should not eat other kinds of solid food such as sandwich or rice. Why? It’s because solid food, if eaten together with fruits, clogs the fruit from being digested in the stomach.

Japan’s fruits are so expensive because of three reasons: 1) Expensive real estate – The rent or ownership of real estate is high (higher than some of the countries in the world) and it is even scarce. Since a person who wants to grow fruit which takes several years to mature and bear fruit has to pay a high amount of money for his land area, the price of fruit becomes expensive, too, 2) Obsession with perfection – Japanese are known to want to produce cosmetically perfect fruit.

Hence, they put a great amount of effort and labor to caring and protecting the trees and fruits, and 3) Some fruits are a symbol of status – a perfect example of this is the Yubari King which symbolizes Japan’s wealth. There was one instance wherein it was bought at an auction for around 3 million Japanese Yen or more than 26,000 US dollars.
