Today we’re talking about FRUIT! Our first fruity question comes from Tessa, she would like to know, where do fruits come from?

To answer Tessa’s fab question we have Sir Tim Smit who built the amazing Eden Project and restored an incredible, wild, botanical garden called The Lost Gardens of Heligan. They are both in Cornwall and incredible places to visit so make sure you go one day!

Tim knows all about trees, plants, nature and fruit, so he’s the perfect person to tell us all about where fruit comes from!

Next up is a spicy question from Blaise, who asks why are chillies so spicy and hot and what is the hottest chilli called?

Find out all about what makes chillies spicy, the scale we use to measure them and which is the hottest one!

Lastly, we chat about nectarines and answer Alice’s question,

do nectarines have nectar in them? What do you think? Find out in this week’s show!

A huge thank you the wonderful Sir Tim Smit for talking to us about fruits and of course a big thank you to Alice, Blaise and Tessa for this week’s questions!
