Green is the colour of the centre. As a synesthetic phenomenon, we also experience it via various organs of sense. In the middle, sandwiched between warm red and cool blue, lies comfortable green. Green tastes salady and sour, while red is sweet and fruity. Blue often has a neutral flavour which is why it is seldom found in the kitchen.
Green is the colour of growth and success. The ripening process in nature generally occurs via a colour palette that extends from pale green through mid-green to yellow and orange, then red to blue and finally black-brown. Etymologically, the word green comes from the Middle English and Old English word “grene” which, like the German word “grün”, has the same root as the words grass and grow.
