Edible describes the tantalising tales behind the fresh produce you love to pick and prod, smell and savour. Discover how millions of crocus stamens are harvested and tranformed into a few ounces of precious saffron; why the watermelon is actually classified as a berry; and how the battle over nutmeg helped decide the fate of Manhattan."--Provided by publisher.
