Have you ever eaten a grapefruit, or maybe a pear? Maybe, maybe not. But today we are going to be talking about the top five fruits to eat. Some you will know and others not.

First Up the pear Pears are fruits produced and eaten around the world, they grow on a tree and are picked in late Summer into October. Pears are a juicy green fruit and they taste delicious. Their scientific name is Pyrus, a class of trees.They are known as a powerhouse fruit, packing fiber, vitamins and plant compounds.I love pears They are one of my favorite fruits and we have some growing in our yard but they haven’t produced any fruit.

Next is Apples: Apples are also produced all around the world and also grow on a tree. They grow worldwide and are the most widely grown tree in the malus class.The tree originates in central Asia. It’s scientific name is Malus domestica. Apples are a widely known fruit and can have many colors. Some popular varieties of apples are Granny Smith and Red Delicious. These Two are very different from each other. My mom is very good at making apple pie and that is how I like apples. We are also growing these.

3rd Up is Pineapple: The Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is an incredibly delicious and healthy tropical fruit.It originated in South America, where early European explorers named it after its resemblance to a pinecone.This popular fruit is packed with nutrients, antioxidants and other helpful compounds, that can fight inflammation and disease. A Pineapple and its compounds have been pinned to many health benefits, including helping digestion, boosting immunity and speeding up recovery from surgery. INFO I love Pineapples they just make me feel relaxed and calm and it feels so nice.

Fourth is strawberries: The strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) originated in Europe in the 18th century. It is a hybrid of two wild strawberry species from North America and Chile. Strawberries are bright red, juicy, and sweet. They’re an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese.Usually eaten raw and fresh, these berries can also be used in a lot of jams, jellies, and desserts. Strawberries are one of the best “Berries” but if the juice gets on my skin it will give me a rash, so watch out.

Lastly we have the Physalia: Physalis peruviana, is a South American plant in the nightshade family commonly known as Cape gooseberry, goldenberry, and poha. The history of P. peruviana cultivation in South America can be traced to the Inca. The plant was grown in England in 1774 and by early settlers of the Cape of Good Hope before 1807. Whether it was grown there before its introduction to England is not known. This fruit is a juicy slightly tart and sweet I have never had them but they sound delicious.
