The restoration of forgotten fruit and vegetables can have a positive contribution to the recovery of biodiversity. And biodiversity has everything to do with food security for the future. From the thousands of species of edible plants, are now for example, only a few hundred widely grown. This makes our food system vulnerable.
To make growing forgotten vegetables and fruits more attractive, it is not only necessary to know how to grow them, but also when they are tasty. Though a few forgotten vegetable came back, there are many more forgotten species. TASTE sees it as a challenge to make a case for forgotten fruits and vegetables. An additional advantage of the restoration of forgotten fruits is the upgrade in landscape.
