For Valentines Day – THE FRUITS OF LOVE ! The French called the TOMATO the pomme d’amour, or the Love Apple, for their belief that the exotic tomato had aphrodisiac powers. We think tomatoes might not be responsible for romance in people, but eating tomatoes does seem to spark a lust for more tomatoes!
VALENTINES DAY and the LOVE FRUITS would not be complete without the AVOCADO! The story goes that Aztec families would keep their daughters shut inside throughout the avocado harvesting season due to the power of avocado as an aphrodisiac. Avocados are helpful in male hormone production and full of beneficial potassium and monounsaturated fats, which help reduce cholesterol and pack important antioxidants.
