List Of Fruits

Print Friendly and PDF

This list of fruits names more than 90 common culinary fruits.

It includes what are generally regarded as edible fruits and their close relatives. The definition of botanical fruit would exclude some of these and include other foods that we think of as vegetables.





The list shows which fruits are closely related by arranging them into families. What are food families?

For more foods, see the list of vegetables, list of grains, list of nuts and seeds, and list of meats and poultry.
