The other day, I had a question about peanuts. As I was eating one, the question of where do peanuts come from started to wonder my mind. For being a university student I felt embarrassed to asked my friends, for fear that I would be tagged as a not knowledgeable person. So to answer the question, I look it up on the internet.
The answer I relieved was totally different then what I expected. It turns out that a peanuts first begins with a flower that is yellow and then finishes as a seed in the ground. I had no idea that we were actually eating seeds. Another fact I found out was that a peanut is not called a nut at all as it is more like a pea then a nut. You can read more Where do peanuts come from at their website. It is extremely fascinating about the information they have.
They have tons of questions similar that this. Another one I found was the ‘Where do cashews come from‘ To make a long story short. I found out that a cashew is very dangerous for humans, or at least the shell is. It’s similar to poison ivy and the cashew has to over go tons of processes to make sure the poison part of the shell is not leaked into the nut.
And again, they have tons more of questions. The site link is below,
