Fruits name with a handy glossary table showcasing the names of various fruits in English, Hindi, Tamil and Marathi equivalents and in some other regional Indian languages.
I consider fruits to be nature’s candy. There are a bountiful of fruits that mother nature has blessed us with. Each season brings in a variety of fruits that we can savor and enjoy.
Fresh fruits are healthy and some of them have the tag of superfood too like avocado, blueberries, watermelon, strawberries, apples. You can eat them, juice them, make smoothies, make jams and preserves. In fact there are so many cakes and desserts that you can make with fruits.
In India we have fruits changing according to the season. There are some fruits that are perennial like bananas or coconut. And some fruits are strictly seasonal like mangoes, various berries, jackfruit.
It is a good practice to eat fruits when they are in season. Also try to buy them locally to save the carbon foot print. I also recommend to eat the indigenous fruits that are natively grown in your country.
