List of culinary fruits


List of culinary fruits

This list of culinary fruits contains the names of some fruits that are considered edible in some cuisines. The definition of fruit for these lists is a culinary fruit, i.e. "Any sweet, edible part of a plant that resembles fruit, even if it does not develop from a floral ovary; also used in a technically imprecise sense for some sweet or sweetish vegetables, some of which may resemble a true fruit or are used in cookery as if they were a , for example rhubarb."

Note that many items that are "true fruits" botanically speaking, are not considered culinary fruits. They are classified as vegetables in the culinary sense, (for example: the tomato, cucumber, zucchini, and so on), and hence they do not appear in this list. There also exist many fruits which are edible and palatable but for various reasons have not become popular.

For inedible fruits, please see list of inedible fruits.

Temperate fruits

Fruits of temperate climates are almost always borne on trees or woody shrubs or lianas. They will not grow adequately in the tropics, as they need a period of cold (a chilling requirement) each year before they will flower. The apple, pear, cherry, and plum are the most widely grown and eaten, owing to their adaptability. Many other fruits are important regionally but do not figure prominently in commerce. Many sorts of small fruit on this list are gathered from the wild, just as they were in Neolithic times.

Rosaceae family

The Family Rosaceae dominates the temperate fruits, both in numbers and in importance. The pome fruits, stone fruits and brambles are fruits of plants in Rosaceae.

The pome fruits:


* Apple and crabapple ("Malus")
* Chokeberry ("Aronia")
* Hawthorn ("Crataegus" and "Rhaphiolepis")
* Loquat ("Eryobotrya japonica")
* Medlar ("Mespilus germanica")
* Pear, European and Asian species ("Pyrus")
* Quince ("Cydonia oblonga" and "Chaenomeles")
* Rose hip, the fruitlike base of roses ("Rosa"); used mostly for jams and herbal tea
* Rowan ("Sorbus")
* Service tree ("Sorbus domestica"), bears a fruit known as a sorb or sorb apple
* Serviceberry or Saskatoon ("Amelanchier")
* Shipova ("× Sorbopyrus auricularis")

The stone fruits, drupes of genus "Prunus":


* Apricot ("Prunus armeniaca" or "Armeniaca vulgaris")
* Cherry, sweet, black, sour, and wild species ("Prunus avium", "Prunus serotina", "P. cerasus", and others)
* Chokecherry ("Prunus virginiana")
* Greengage, a cultivar of the plum
* Hybrids of the preceding species, such as the pluot, aprium and peacotum
* Peach (of the normal and white variety) and its variant the nectarine ("Prunus persica")
* Plum, of which there are several domestic and wild species; dried plums are called prunes

Berries

In non-technical usage, berry means any small fruit that can be eaten whole and lacks objectionable seeds. The bramble fruits, compound fruits of genus "Rubus" (blackberries), are some of the most popular pseudo-berries:


* Blackberry, of which there are many species and hybrids, such as dewberry, boysenberry, olallieberry, and tayberry (genus "Rubus")
* Cloudberry ("Rubus chamaemorus")
* Loganberry ("Rubus loganobaccus")
* Raspberry, several species (genus "Rubus")
* Salmonberry ("Rubus spectabilis")
* Thimbleberry ("Rubus parviflorus")
* Wineberry ("Rubus phoenicolasius")

The true berries are dominated by the family Ericaceae, many of which are hardy in the subarctic:


* Bearberry ("Arctostaphylos" spp.)
* Bilberry or whortleberry ("Vaccinium" spp.)
* Blueberry ("Vaccinium" spp.)
* Crowberry ("Empetrum" spp.)

Podocarps

Podocarps are conifers in the family Podocarpaceae. The seed cones are highly modified and, in some, the seed is surrounded by fleshy scale tissue, resembling a drupe. These berry-like cone scales are eaten by birds which then disperse the seeds in their droppings and the cones can be eaten in many species. Podocarps are either half-hardy or frost tender, depending on species. Many genera are similar in that they have edible "fruits" and often don't have a common name.
