Members’ Week: Grocery Store Botany

Sunday, October 4, 2020

10:00 AM-11:00 AM

Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? Why aren't strawberries true berries? What do Brussels sprouts, cabbage and broccoli have in common? Learn about the botany of your local produce section and the plants that provide some of your favorite (or least favorite) foods.

The Academy of Natural Sciences is thrilled to bring the magic of Members’ Night into our members’ homes for an entire week. Explore behind-the-scenes, chat with our scientists, participate in experiments and so much more! See the full schedule at
