There is always something about everything that you would have never known before. For instance, did you know that apples, raspberries, pears, and strawberries all share the family with the rose plant? Most of us did not know this. Well, more things like this would have never crossed your mind. Here are some crazy facts about food that are going to leave your mind boggled.
Cilantro and coriander is the same thing
They’re just two different names to describe the same plant. (There are also coriander seeds — which come from the plant too, and you can find them whole or ground up into spices.)
Peaches and nectarines are the same, too
They’re almost genetically identical except for one thing: a gene that’s either dominant (peaches) or recessive (nectarines). That’s what makes the skin either smooth or fuzzy.
