A list of fruits and vegetables names

To most of us ‘fruit’ means juicy foods which grow on certain plants and trees. Oranges, apples, and apricots are three examples.

These fruits taste good and are very important in our diet. They can give us vitamins, mineral salts as well as natural sugars. The water, seeds, and skins of fruit help our digestion.

To scientists who study plants, fruits are the ripe seed cases of any flowering plant. The fruits protect the seeds as they develop and help spread them when they are ripe. Some fruits scatter seeds. Other fruits are eaten by birds and animals that spread the seeds.

In many plants, the seeds are enclosed in fleshy fruits. Many fruits are good to eat. As the fruits develop from the flowers, the sepals and petals wither and finally drop off. In this post, we’ll provide you with a list of fruits and vegetables.
