Food, Seeds, Fruits, Food • Inquisition
 
I appreciate gourmet food and while enjoying my food I would think about how they originally look like. Remember one time while I am having a passion fruit from my friend, I thought why not save some seeds and try plant the fruit. To my surprise, those seeds germinated into saplings and later grew into these climbing plants with beautiful blossoms. Those gorgeous flowers grew into fruits and ended up in my stomach again, and of course I saved some seeds for planting again. Aside from passionate fruit, I also tried grow Roselle, Okra, bitter melon and peas, all from seeds of the fruit.
