Stone Fruit: Five Favorites for Summer

Cherries, peaches, mangoes, lychees, and blackberries all share a common bond: They are nutritious and delicious “stone fruit” (and make perfect pies!). Their seed is sequestered inside a hard stone, or pit, called an endocarp—while the mesocarp is the juicy edible fruit we all love. The multiple “seeds” in blackberries or raspberries are actually their miniature endocarps holding even tinier seeds inside.

But human activity has created climate change and pollution of the oceans, land, air, and food—through industrialization, habitat destruction, farming practices, and even eating habits—rendering this a far-from-perfect world. What footprint are we leaving for future generations? How can we save the planet? 

Veestro’s mantra that plant-based is pleasing for people and the planet is one that’s getting more mainstream exposure and scientific support lately. In a recent editorial at CNN, George C.
