When it comes to most of our favorite foods, we usually encounter them only after they've been processed to a state that we're familiar with.

In most cases, we first meet the delicious fruits and vegetables that we'll later eat when we pick them up at our local supermarket. We know what they look like on the store shelves, and we know what we look like once we're done preparing them at home. However, I’m willing to bet that we're all pretty clueless as to how our go-to foods are grown.
