Take a Campus “Plant Power” Tour

Prof. Asaph Aharoni is passionate about the power of plants and how their unique chemistry can be used to nourish and heal the world. In this video, he takes us on a special tour around campus to visit the various places he studies plants, from the chemistry lab to the greenhouse. Join him to see how licorice might be used as a low-calorie sweetener, the medicinal potential for rare cannabinoids, and the natural benefit of an eggplant’s bitter flavor.
