Greenhouse That Introduced Public To Incredibly Stinky Plant Now Offers Bite of Incredibly Tasty One
After inviting the populace to sample a plant that actually emits two of the compounds secreted by decaying flesh, SFSU greenhouse maven Martin Grantham has a much sweeter deal in store for the general public today. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. he's offering free samples of a SFSU-grown pineapple -- but, far more intriguingly, he has seven small "miracle fruits." These amazing West African plants flood the zone of one's tastebuds so thoroughly that even sour, nasty foods taste sweet and delicious for half an hour or more after eating one. Yes, that does sound Willy Wonka-ish.
