Farming in the Mountains: Max Level Jiaojiao Is Three Years Old - Chapter 446
446 Skinny Fruit
After finishing the calculation, Xue Sifu spoke first. “Mother, where are the strawberries that Jiang Yue and Xue Yan picked this morning? I want to have a taste. They told me they were delicious.”
“What strawberry? You mean raspberry, right?
“Well, it does look like a raspberry, but the length is somewhat different from those in the wild. It should be another kind of berry. Jiang Yue and Xue Yan gave it another name, they called it a strawberry. I think it’s called strawberry, right kids? Yes, I remember now. It was originally dug in the wild, but it is actually another kind of berry, so they wanted to rename it and call it a strawberry. Jiang Yue said that the strawberry fruit can be mixed with the crushed ice. We can sprinkle it with some sugar to sell. We can’t sell red bean ice every day. It’ll be better to have more options, right??”
“Both Jiang Yue and Xue Yan were only picking wild fruits for fun. Are you sure you want to sell this? What if it was harmful?”
Xue Dafu spoke up as well, “Yes, it might be harmful to other people. We don’t know what it can do.”
Xue Sifu smiled and replied, “Father, Mother, you are being too careful. We know that raspberries are not poisonous. It’s not like it’s never been eaten before. How will it poison us to death? People don’t eat it because it’s not delicious. Do you think Xue Yan and Jiang Yue have gotten sick?? How long has it been? They’ve eaten it in the morning and nothing happened. Nothing happened to them after they ate so many pieces. There’s nothing to worry about.”
As soon as these words came out, Liu Guixia and the others laughed.
“Hahaha…” Xue Wufu laughed straight away, “Yes, Sifu, you’re right, don’t we often eat beans, but if we eat too much at one time, some people will feel bloated.”
“That’s the reason.” Xue Sifu said with a smile.
“After you say that, I feel relieved.” Liu Guixia smiled. “I thought that raspberries were poisonous, that’s why I was worried. In the past, some children in the village were ignorant, and they picked and ate it by themselves, causing them to have a stomach ache. If this strawberry can be sold, then we should sell it. I also ate one in the morning. It tastes good. I don’t feel uncomfortable, just wait, I’ll go get it right away.”
“Mother, let me get it.” Li Hehua smiled and went to get it. She was relieved hearing the news.
The little basket was brought.
“They’ve already washed it, so you can eat it whenever.”
Xue Sifu took one and ate it. It was sour and sweet, full of juice, and it was delicious. He imagined cutting this bright strawberry in half, putting it on a small bowl of crushed ice, and sprinkling some sugar. It would be wonderful. “I’m sure it’ll sell just as well as the red bean ice!”
Xue Wufu groaned and nodded, “It’s so yummy!”
Only then did Xue Dafu, Xue Yifu, Li Hehua, and Yu Hongyan dare to eat. Yu Hongyan, who was pregnant, found this fruit exceptionally tasty.
Generally, the good things grown at home are kept until the next year.
“How will we keep the seeds…” Li Hehua asked, very puzzled. “It looks like there are no seeds… If we want to plant them next year, do we have to dig them in the wild again?”
Jiang Yue and Xue Yan had already entered the main room while the family members were talking about strawberries. Hearing this, Jiang Yue finally opened her mouth, pointing to the black spot on the strawberry fruit in Li Hehua’s hand, and said, “That looks like a seed.”
This black spot was not a seed. It was actually the real fruit of the strawberry, which is the small achene.
The real seeds of strawberries are in this small achene.
