Fruits are a type of healthy food that grow on trees or on other types of plants and usually contain seeds. Fruits taste sweet because they have natural sugars in them and they are soft, dry or fleshy to make them easy to eat. You can eat the skin of some fruits, like apples and pears, but people usually do not eat the skins of other fruits, like bananas, kiwis and citrus fruits. When fruits are ready to be picked and eaten, they are described as being ‘ripe’. There are a few different groups that fruits are organised into: citrus, stone, exotic, melons, and berries, among others.
