Thanet Earth's Fruits and Veggies

UK puts “Frankenfood” on the market.

Tired of waiting until spring for your favorite salad ingredients? If you live in England, your wait is over thanks to Thanet Earth. On the 220-acre Isle of Thanet, the company is using greenhouse-like conditions to produce crops that taste, smell, and look like traditional farm-fresh fruits and veggies, allowing consumers to enjoy locally grown produce year-round. However, these science-manipulated plants grow without one considerable component: soil. Instead, they thrive in a closely-monitored, temperature-controlled environment in which they are drip-fed nutrient-enriched water. Sound like something out of the 21st century? Well, welcome to it. We'll be watching closely to determine if this futuristic food is safe and healthy.
