Organic foods straight from the local farm, ftw!
The flavor has been bred out of them in favor of durability (not bruising during packing & shipping and the ability to hold for a long shelf life) That's why I grow some of my veggies, home grown cucumbers have a mouth-watering aroma that store bought cukes don't have.
The fruits and veggies I grow taste great but it's spoiled me. I don't even like wasting money on crap. It's not the pesticides that changed the flavor, it's the fact that they're bred for stability and appearance and that makes them lose a lot in taste. Plus commercial produce is picked before it's ripe.
Yes. <br />
The Agri businesses did this on purpose to destroy the texture and taste of fruits and vegtables so more and more people would start to eat fast foods.
Yes they are overdosed with fertilizer and pesticides and sped along very quickly to allow extra crops per year. You'd notice a difference growing your own or buying from a local market.
That happened a few years ago
That is because they are now mass produced and treated with chemicals :(
Not like now where they remove everything else and swamp with chemicals.
