Fruit Hunters Documentory

I found this quite a fascinating little documentary that explores a wide variety of fruit and the importance of biodiversity for our food security.

The title of “Fruit Hunters” is attributed to people who travel the globe looking for rare and endangered fruits in order to preserve them and maintain diversity as well as just to simply enjoy them for eating.

This also covers the issues of things like taking certain fruits for granted and some history on almost losing Bananas from disease due to only having on variety and they also touch on them trying to develop more varieties.

These food hunters speak on the “living libraries” they are creating for preservation purposes as well as bringing new fruits to people via markets etc.

Now check out part 2:

Documentary made by “The Nature of Things” for CBS, thank you.
