The kaki fruit is a sweet and succulent fruit originally from Asia. Known as the “apple of the Orient”, the kaki fruit was first cultivated in ancient China. It journeyed from Asia to Europe in the 19th century, and its cultivation spread across the Mediterranean basin, a region blessed with sun-drenched landscapes and a mild climate.
Eating kaki fruits is a sweet and tasty delight. The fruit is quite large and comes in various shapes, such as oval, spherical, conical, or elongated. The skin is pale orange to red, while the flesh is orange to red and has a very distinctive flavor.
The leading European country in kaki fruit production is Spain.
The tomato is spherical or elongated in shape, and when it is fully matured it is an intense red color and very juicy.
The cucumber is perhaps the most refreshing vegetable. It is impressive that approximately 95% of a cucumber is water.
Hot or sweet, raw or cooked, peppers add color, flavor and quality to the Mediterranean cuisine.
Although the origins of the eggplant are disputed, its cultivation spread quickly across Europe and other parts of the world.
