Avocado is a huge, bright green fruit with leathery, black skin. They are often referred to as butterscotch fruit or alligator pear. They can be found in a variety of dishes, including salads, sandwiches, milkshakes, and even brownies.

It has several calories and a lot of fat, which may scare many. However, as long as you consume them in proportion, monounsaturated fat is a “healthy” fat that lowers harmful blood cholesterol. Approximately twenty minerals and vitamins are present in avocados.

Bell pepper, also known as capsicum or sweet pepper is cultivated for its large, delicious fruits. These peppers are abundant in vitamins A and C and are used in both fried and salad meals.

With a barely sweet taste combination and tart, it begins to mature and develop notes of gooseberry, pear, and melon. The fruit is frequently eaten fresh, in juice form, or caramelized in sugar syrup.

4. Cucumber

The delicious fruit of the climbing cucumber plant (Cucumis sativus), a member of the gourd family (Cucurbitaceae), is one of its most popular uses.

Although the cucumber has poor nutrient benefits other than its’ water content, its mild flavor makes it a favorite for salads and relishes. Pickled cucumbers are also very popular.

5. Eggplant

You have two options when growing eggplant: direct seeding into the soil or purchasing transplants to plant in your garden. Growing from seed is advantageous because you can choose from a wider range of types.

Eggplants are a source of phenolic compounds, which serve as antioxidants and have fiber, which may lower cholesterol levels.

Free radicals are dangerous molecules that can harm cells if they build up in big concentrations. Antioxidants are substances that aid the body in eliminating these molecules. Antioxidant-rich foods may help prevent a variety of illnesses.

6. Grapefruit

Citrus paradisi, a popular cross between pomelos and sweet oranges, is a member of the Rutaceae family that produces the edible fruit known as grapefruit.

Around the world, grapefruit has gained popularity as a morning fruit, and development has spread to the majority of nations that produce citrus.

Only the lemon and orange outperform the grapefruit as common fruits as a supply of vitamin C. Its pulp often has a characteristic somewhat acidic flavor and is light yellow, soft, and packed with fluid.

Arches hypogea, often known as peanut, groundnut, earthnut, or goober, is cultivated for its delicious seeds.

The peanut is actually legume instead of a genuine nut, despite its many common names. Legumes are a nutrient-dense food that is abundant in fat and protein.

The plant is particularly beneficial as a crop for soil enrichment because, like other legumes, it uses nitrogen-fixing bacteria to supply nitrogen into the soil.

11. Radish

Radish roots are often consumed raw and have few calories; the fresh leaves can be prepared similarly to spinach. Additionally edible, the young fruits are frequently consumed raw or fried.

The sweet, crisp, relatively firm meat of the small, quickly growing spring kinds contrasts with the pungent, firmly flavored flesh of the huge, growing steadily summer and cold varieties.
