Raspberries are very healthy! They contain a lot of vitamin C and antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your cells and DNA against other harmful substances. Even when you make jam from raspberries, for example, this substance continues to work!
The blueberry is also known as blueberry. But did you know that they are actually green at first and only then turn blue/purple? It really is a superfood! Of all fruits, they contain the most fibres. They contain almost no calories but a lot of antioxidants that protect against high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
A plant needs water, carbon dioxide and light to make oxygen and food to grow. This process is called photosynthesis. People breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. The blueberry contains the substance anthocyanins which accelerates this process and gives the blue colour. And we enjoy the fresh oxygen in the air again!
If you look at a blackberry it will not surprise you that it is related to the raspberry. They have been eaten for over 2000 years. In the past, they were even used as medicine for people with fever and intestinal problems.
Whether it is a medicine or not is debatable. In any case, they are very healthy. They are full of fibre and vitamins. Good for your immune system!
Blackberries are actually a kind of mini berries that are connected to each other. A blackberry consists of 20 to 50 seeds attached to each other.
Did you know that the fruit of the fig plant, the fig, is one of the oldest known fruits? The ancient Egyptians already ate them.
In the past, the fruit was often candied. This is the drying of fruit in a layer of sugar, so that it can be kept longer. Nowadays, however, figs are also eaten fresh in salads. The fig is also delicious as jam.
Figs are very healthy! They have a high nutritional value, many vitamins and fibres, but very few calories (40 kcal). The fig is a little laxative. This means that it is easier to go to the toilet.
The kiwi (Actinidia) is a delicious fruit! Juicy, fresh and sweet at the same time. Like the other Tasty Green fruit plants, the fruit of this plant is also super healthy. This energy bomb gives you the power to start the day. The kiwi contains more vitamin C than many other fruits and is also full of fibre, minerals and antioxidants. A real winner!
A kiwi is very tasty to eat with a spoon, just out of the blue. But in yoghurt or fruit shake, it is also a delicious addition. What many people don’t know (or don’t do) is that you can also eat the skin of the kiwi.
Currants are also known as redcurrants. The fruits taste sour to sweet-sour and contain a number of yellow-brown edible seeds.
Currants purify your blood, ensure good digestion and contain little sugar and a lot of minerals. Deliciously healthy!
Currants are delicious on their own, in fruit salads, in puddings, and so on. But making lemonade syrup from them is also very tasty.
The plastic pot in which you receive your Tasty Green comes from ELHO. The plastic used for ELHO pots is 100% recycled plastic! And did you know that the ELHO factory even has its own windmill? This ensures that the pots are made with 100% wind energy! There are beehives on the premises of ELHO. In spring and summer, nearly 2 million bees buzz around the factory. The pots do not benefit from this, but the nature around the ELHO factory does.
ELHO also makes watering cans and rain barrels. Did you know that the watering can is made of 12 used detergent bottles? And that rain barrel is perfect to collect water in your own vegetable garden for your Tasty Green fruit plants. It’s better than tap water, too!
