Fruit Facts and Spoilers
Did you know that every flowering plant species produces fruit? So why aren’t there more choices in the produce department at the grocers? It might be because most fruit are NOT EDIBLE. At least by humans. At least not more than once… What is a fruit and why can’t we eat them all? We will explore this during a botanical foray into flowering plant reproduction and the mechanism plants employ for the job.

This webinar is recommended for adults and youth over 12.
