as a second addition to my new series of puzzles, my first scrund is about a certain edible substance. (trying to make it a little bit harder...)

Is this substance actually food, or simply edible? Is it plant, mineral or animal? Is it cooked? Prepared in some other way?

Is the scrund about whether the substance is actually edible?

Have you ever eaten it? would you guess most of us fellow puzzlers would have also?

Any aspects such as effect on weight? nutritional value? allergies? customs/traditions?

Is the substance found in one particular country/ region? Is it regarded as a foodsource in some places and not in others?

Is it a vegetable? The whole plant, or just part of it? Is the scrund about what climate it grows in? Is it eaten raw? Is the scrund about the method of harvesting the plant? Would it be found in most supermarkets? Is it grown by farmers? Does it grow in an unusual environment?

Did you eat it without knowing that it was? Or see it in two different forms and not know they were the same plant? Or think that two foods were the same when they were in fact different? Is some sort of preparation (cooking, pickling, refrigerating, seasoning) involved in your scrund?

Is it a fruit (i.e., something with seeds)? A vegetable? Grain? Herb or spice?

No offense meant, just looking for the scrund...

Is it a fruit with other ingredients as well? If so, are these plants? Is sugar relevant? Salad?

Does the scrund involve the history of the food? Taste? Preparation? How it grows?

Does it grow: underground? Above ground? On a bush? In a tree? Is it potatoes? Did you think they were grown from seeds, when they are in fact planted?

Does the fruit contain a single seed within it? Multiple seeds within it? Multiple seeds on the outside of it? No seeds?

Does the fruit grow singly? Or in bunches/clusters? Or just one fruit per tree?

Is the scrund about how seedless grapes are grown? (I don't even know the answer myself, though I'd assume they are grown from some kind of cuttings of the plant that sprout when placed in the ground)

Bananas? Grapes?

If bananas, is it the common misconception that bananas are grown on a tree? When in fact banana plants are just really tall plants (non-woody)?
