  • LITTLE KNOWN VEGETABLE SECRETS

    Posted on March 9th, 2011 Pam No comments

    Most sweet peppers are loaded with vitamin C and A. Red peppers have twice the vitamin C and eleven times the beta carotene of green peppers.

    When it comes to HOT PEPPERS, the smaller and thinner the pepper, the hotter it is.

    Most people don’t know if pumpkin or squash is used in a pie. Most cooks prefer winter squash to pumpkin because it makes a pie that is non-fibrous.

    One of the heaviest tomatos on record was grown in Oklahoma and weighed 7 lb. 12 oz.

    There are around 10,000 varieties of tomatoes in a rainbow of reds, yellows, greens, purples, pinks, and even white.

    Tomato plants emit a mild toxin that discourages many small insects from bugging them, get it?

    Carrots are extremely high in vitamin A, also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.

    Carotene is an orange photosynthetic pigment that is important for photosynthesis in plants, it is also good for us.
