Did you know that…
Early Europeans amazed the native people of Mexico with fruits, grains and vegetables they had never seen before, such as grapes and wheat. The native Mexicans returned the favor, sharing zucchini, beans, corn, and a variety of peppers which had been staples in Central America for thousands of years. Once these early explorers had their first taste, they were hooked, returning to Europe and spreading their new finds around the world.
