TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTION


1) This 'fruit' will not ripen on the tree. They must be picked from the tree to initiate ripening because the leaves supply a substance that prevents ripening. The best way to store them is to leave them on the tree; they will store for 7 months or more when left on the tree.
What is the name of this 'fruit'?

2) It is believed that the sheep's milk cheese that Polyphemus the Cyclops made in his caves in Homer's 'Odyssey' was most likely an early form of this cheese.
You are really good if you can name this cheese.

3) This sweetest of all fruits has a 55% sugar content. The tree has no blossoms because the flower is inside the fruit.
What is this physically unusual fruit?

 

 


ANSWERS TO TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTION:


1) Avocado.

2) Feta cheese.

3) Figs are the sweetest of all fruits, with a 55% sugar content. The flower of the fig is inside the fruit, so there are no blossoms on fig trees. Sort of like an inside out strawberry.
