I know I’ve been asking all of you for your goals, so here are mine! I want to incorporate more raw fruits and vegetables (as opposed to cooked) into my diet. Although several of my recipes are vegan, I’m not a vegan nor do I plan to go “fully raw” (to be honest I just really like eggs way too much ❤️🍳😂) but I still need and would like to get more nutrients from raw foods. It’ll be fun to experiment with some raw recipes as well! I also need to drink more water. But that’s been my goal forever so…. We’ll see. 😁 #raw #fruit #healthy #healthyfood #eatclean #cleaneats #eatarainbow

Wonderberries! I’m getting obsessed with finding easy-to-grow fruits that are high in anthocyanins, the purple antioxidant pigments that are so important for good health. The research on benefits of anthocyanins is simply astounding, including:
-Preventing age-related decline in neural function
-Protection against cardiovascular disease
-Improving blood sugar regulation
-Reduce cancer cell proliferation and tumor formation.
Wonderberry is a hybrid species developed by Luther Burbank over a century ago. Called Solanum burbankii or Solanum retroflexum, it produces abundant crops of berries that are intensely purple with several types of anthocyanins.
I grew it from seed, and I’m just getting my first harvest now.
So what’s my verdict so far? The fruits do indeed have deep dark purple pigmentation, especially just under the skin. I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience of eating them fresh off the plant: the berries are small, kind of seedy, and don’t have a lot of flavor. I’ve heard they are traditionally used in cooked dishes, sweetened with sugar. They might be good in a smoothie, mixed in with sweeter, more flavorful fruits. It’d be great if a breeding program could develop this species to have larger, fleshier, more flavorful berries. Wonderberry is in the same genus as tomato - I wonder if the two species can be hybridized to create intensely purple, anthocyanin-rich tomatoes. I’ve got lots of other anthocyanin fruit-growing experiments in the works - stay tuned!
