Grapes, bananas, apples, plums, raspberries, blackberries, pears, peaches, and apricots are non-citrus fruits. Also classified as non-citrus fruits include olives, coconuts, avocados, and honeydew melons. The types of simple, fleshy fruits are berry, pepo, drupe, pome, and hesperidium.
Grapes, pomegranates, bananas, currants, cranberries, blueberries, chilli plants, eggplants, and tomatoes are examples of true berries, which are fleshy fruits with one or more seeds. Pepos are members of the gourd family, which includes squash, watermelon, cucumber, pumpkin, and cantaloupe. Pepos have a thick rind.
Drupes are fleshy fruits that contain a hard seed or stone, such as peaches, cherries, olives, nectarines, as well as the fruits of pecans, walnuts, and pistachios, to name a few. Pomes contain a centre around which the fruit develops. The core is typically not consumed. Apples, quinces, loquats and pears are some examples of pomes. Some fruits are categorised as aggregation fruits due to the fact that they develop from a single blossom. Collective fruits include raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries. Multiple fruits, such as pineapples, breadfruits, and figs, develop when a cluster of blooms each generate a fruit that matures into a single mass.
Hesperidium comprises citrus fruits characterised by a leathery exterior, while the fruit itself is partitioned with papery walls. Oranges, grapefruits, lemons and kumquats are examples. Kumquats are the only citrus fruit whose peel can be consumed.
