fruit-icon

Fruit is typically defined as the fleshy portion of a tree or plant that is produced from the ovary after flowering. The fruit provides structure to hold the seeds. When we see the beautiful cherry tree blossom, we know the bright red fruit will soon be revealed.

Commonly, people consider this edible substance to be fruit if it is juicy and sweet. Otherwise, it is considered to be vegetable. Our list of fruits and their associated food facts are derived from the United States Department of Agriculture which generally adheres to this common definition.
