Who doesn't love good, fresh, fruit!?

The first fruit on my list of fruits is the star fruit! Although I have never tried it there seem to be many health benefits! (always a good thing.)It is a very low calorie exotic fruit. It carries a good amount of vitamin-C and has dietary fiber!http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/star-fruit.html. It also contains small amount of minerals and electrolytes like potassium, phosphorus, and zinc and iron. The real name of a star fruit is Caramola. It's a type of fruit native to the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka!!! People pick this fruit off of the trees when the green fruit has a little bit of yellow in it. When you cut the fruit cross ways it shapes a perfect star. (hinting the name star fruit). Star fruits don't need to be peeled or the seeds taken out. They can be eaten whole!

The rambutan fruit is one of the most exotic fruits in the world!!!! Who knew! It is most commonly found in Southeast Asia. The fruit is shaped like an oval and approximately 1 to 2 inches long after you take the red fuzz.

It looks like a little sea urchin. The rambutan is an excelent source of vitamin C. The flavor of a rambutan is sweet and more acidic than the lychee

The rambutan also has a great amount of vitamin C which is great for the body!It also carries Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, and Zinc!

If you consider pineapple the king of fruits that guava is deffinately the queen! It is native to southern Central America and Mexico where it's been a major crop for centuries. It grows in the tropics on small trees with smooth, copper-colored bark! It is often used in smoothies to make a very fruity tastes.

This fruit, the mango, i actually have eaten!! It is very delicious especially in mango salsa or just mango smoothies. The mango is native to southern Asia, specifically Burma and eastern Idia. Right now you can find them worldwide in subtropical and tropical regions.They are 2 to 9 inches long. To know if it's ripe you have to know its species. Some ripen into a pale green color and some ripen into yellow with marks of red.

Pineapple is a great fruit!Fun facts about pineapple: It takes almost 3 years for a single pineapple to reach maturation. Which makes the price tag a bit more understandable. Pineapple plants have really pretty flowers.Besides fruit salads and tropical drinks, pineapples are also used to make wine. Pineapple cores contain high levels of bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, which has a whole slew of health benefits. Pineapple is also great for tenderizing meat.

I love grapes! Some super cool fun facts about grapes are: Grapes appear in many colours. White, red, black, blue, green, purple and golden. There are over 8,000 grape varieties worldwide. The grape appears in the top ten of the world’s favorite fruits, along with tomatoes, mangos and bananas. (personaly I don't understand why the banana is favored because it's gross.) The USA imports 25% of their grapes from Chile. Lastly, grapes help minimize the risk of heart attacks because they increase the levels of nitric acid in the blood which prevents blood clots.

I've never actually tried dragon fruit, but just at the look of it I would love to. I like how brightly colored it is and the inside doesn't look like any fruit I have ever seen before!Dragon fruit grows on a cactus that blooms for only one night per fruit cycle.Pollination of the dragon fruit plant is done by nocturnal creatures, like moths and bats. Many people say dragon fruit tastes best when eaten chilled.
