Coconut VII + Almond

Coconut Almond Granola: Drupe It Like It's Hot; Drop It Like It's Hot

Since starting this cartoon blog, we have spent a significant amount of time on Wikipedia piecing together the plant taxonomies--do you remember kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species from high school biology?  The primary reason for doing this goofy activity is to uncover terms that lend themselves to puns.  Something else that we have discovered is that, in practice, it is often difficult to cleanly conform to this system of classification.

Take for example, the lovely drupe.  The drupe is defined as more or less the fruit of the Prunus genus (as in prunes and other stone fruit).  Who would have guessed that foods like coconuts and almonds fall into the same category as nectarines, apricots, cherries, peaches, plums, mangoes, pistachios, coffee and olives?  This reminds us that biology is also evolving as scientists attempt to create order and identify patterns within a system that was thoughtfully created by humans.

Speaking of amazing human creations, how about this amazing Coconut Almond Granola by Giselle at Diary of an ExSloth

P.S. Cadry, thanks for the inspiration for today's cartoon!
