Now the REAL question here is…can YOU pass this fruit growing quiz?

There were actually two on here that I didn’t know but I’m happy to say I passed. πŸ˜‰

Do you know where your fruits and vegetables come from? A survey of 1,000 British children ages 6 to 12 found that one in five didn’t know apples grow on trees, while more than 9 in 10 weren’t aware that bananas or strawberries came from plants.
