2021 has been declared the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables by the United Nations. Promoting the contribution of fruits and vegetables to diversified, balanced and healthy diets and lifestyles is amongst its aims. This course will explore the chemistry and botany of the main “edible” plant families that contribute fruits and vegetables to the human diet. We will examine the chemistry behind the superfood headlines, discover how plants can be used as crop protection agents and reveal the chemical truth of urban legends such as “green potatoes are poisonous”.
