Vocabulary: all about fruits
Whether they were eaten raw, or cooked, fruits have always composed human beings' diets. Before becoming cultivators and then hunters, men were pickers.
Some fruits are available to consumption throughout the year. In our latitudes, they are reaped in season and kept and stored to prevent them from rotting. The only real problem being that eating ripe fruits is exceptional, especially in the districts where they aren't produced.
