What makes a Superfruit so “Super”? Scientist don’t actually agree on what actually makes a food “Super”, but we won’t focus on the nomenclature in this article. Instead we are going to celebrate what we think makes these fruits so “Super” to have in your own backyard. Perhaps we should use a different term like “Extra Nutritional Food”, but it doesn’t quite sound as fun as super fruits. The one common theme we see between fruits that have been dubbed super fruits is either an abundance of a particular vitamin, fatty acid or mineral, or the presence of some nutrient we don’t typically see a lot of in our diets. Many of these fruits have particularly dark skin and flesh due to the high number of antioxidants contained within them. Here are five super fruits for the South African garden.
Be a super gardener and plant some super fruit in your garden.
