Before our favorite fruits, nuts, spices, and veggies are harvested and distributed around the world for our culinary enjoyment, they often look astonishingly different from what we're used to seeing.

Inspired by a list put together by Bright Side, we've compiled some common foods in their raw, untouched states. What you see may surprise you!
