Fruits are often the most nutritious part of the plant and, unlike vegetables, their high water content allows most to be eaten without cooking. Because they are usually sweet, fruits are often eaten as a dessert, for breakfast, or as a refreshing snack.
Fruits fall into several major categories. Some that have a significant pit, such as the plum, are called stone (or drupe) fruit. Berry fruits are those which are small and tend to cluster, such as grapes or raspberries. Pome fruit, such as apples and pears, have small seeds; and citrus fruits have a thick rind and juicy, segmented flesh.
Most fruits can be stored well, canned, frozen, or dried, and today’s transportation and refrigeration allow us to enjoy a wide variety of fresh fruit year-round.
