I have been to Italy, Greece & Turkey. Fruit & Veg in these places tastes amazing! So much flavour, really awesome!
In the UK when I buy the same fruit or veg, it is absolutely tasteless, it is just crunchy water!
Why is this? I used to think it was because there was very little Sun here. However, many of the fruit & veg in question come from Spain! A place with a lot of sunshine! Something else must be in play!
I am talking about melons & watermelons, grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, plums, peaches, oranges and much more!
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
PS. Places I shop at are Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, Asda, Sainsburys.
