Name That Fruit

There are literally thousands upon thousands of different varieties of edible fruits in the world. And yet, many people – especially kids – can only name about five or ten. You’ve got your apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, peaches… and then that’s about where it starts to trail off for a lot of folks. But if you’re willing to do a little exploring in the produce section, you might find some surprising and interesting new treats.

We spent the day at Melissa’s Produce headquarters today and got a chance to sample some old and new fruit favorites. We can’t wait to share more with you in the coming days and weeks about what we learned. But in the meantime, here’s a little brain-twister: Can you name all of the (not-necessarily-common) fruits on this plate?
