Peach on the treeIt is hard to beat the taste of a perfectly ripened fruit, especially when it's fresh and on a hot summer day. 

I have many fond memories of enjoying different kinds of fruit (especially watermelon) while spending time in my grandparents yard in the summertime. 

So why does ripened fruit taste and look so good and how does it get that way from the boring green pod it starts as? 

This video by the Today I Found Out YouTube channel will answer these questions and may also make you a little hungry in the process.
