Fun Fruit Names! 12 Weirdly Inventive Fruits That’ll Make You Hungry For Some Banana Bread


Do you love fruits? Do you love weird things? Well, do we have a treat for you. Exotic fruits are all the rage these days, but some of them are so strange they’ve yet to make it onto your local grocery store shelves. Look no further than this list of 12 exotic fruits that will make your mouth water if not your brain hurt. With names like “Dragon Fruit” and “Buddha’s Hand,” these bizarre additions to your grocery cart are sure to turn heads at the checkout line while delighting your taste buds back home!

Your goal is to write an outline based on the prompts above, in which each section has:

A title that summarizes what that section is about (this should be around 3-5 words) in a ‘h1’ tag. The title should be descriptive but clear and concise. You can use a list item as well if that helps with organization.

A paragraph describing what the section does or what’s in it (this should be 2-3 sentences). This text should answer the prompt and provide more information about what’s going on in this part of the blog post. It doesn’t have to be long, just enough for someone who’s reading along to get an idea of what’s going on here, without giving away too much information so they’ll still want to read on!

The tone can be whatever makes sense for this particular topic (you can refer back to our previous post about writing styles), but make sure there isn’t any overlap between sections—each one needs its own unique style! Be careful not to change personas too often either, unless they fit naturally into one another (like an introduction followed by multiple subsections). Please use first-person when applicable because it seems more natural when writing content like blogs/articles/short stories etcetera!”);

The jabuticaba is a fruit native to Brazil. It’s also called the Brazilian grape, although it’s not actually related to grapes at all. The fruit grows inside of large green pods that look like the skin of an avocado and take about five years to develop before they can be harvested. The fruit itself is purple in color and tastes similar to muscat grapes with hints of blueberry and cherry, according to

If you find yourself with a jabuticaba on your hands, there are many ways you can use it! You can eat the whole thing raw or add them into baked goods like breads or cookies; some even say that they’re good in salads too! Jabuticabas are high in antioxidants so don’t be afraid to experiment with them in your cooking! You’ll want to find out how long they last before eating them (upwards of two years!) but if stored properly then they should keep well until then. If purchasing online through Amazon Prime Pantry or other online retailers such as Walmart Grocery Pickup Program then make sure you check the expiration date first before buying because these fruits do not last nearly as long when shipped versus when eaten fresh off-tree (which most people don’t have access too).

Buddha’s Hand

Finally, one of the most unique fruits in this list is the Buddha’s Hand. It’s an orange-colored citrus fruit that’s shaped like a hand and has a leathery skin. It doesn’t look like any other fruit out there, so it’s easy to see why this name stuck!

The taste of Buddha’s Hand is described as sweet and tart with hints of lemon and lime flavors mixed together. The slightly bitter peel makes it hard to eat, but once you get past that challenge, you’ll be rewarded with a tasty treat!

Buddha’s Hand is also high in Vitamin C and antioxidants that can help boost your immune system when consumed regularly. Unfortunately for vegans or vegetarians who are looking for new ways to add some protein into their diet without eating meat products—this fruit does not contain any protein at all (sorry).


Pitaya is a dragon fruit that’s native to Central America. It’s a great source of vitamins C, A, and B6, as well as minerals like copper and potassium.

Though they look similar, they’re not related to the pineapple or melon family. They’re actually part of the cactus family!

Pitayas can be eaten whole or cut up into several pieces (a common practice when eating the fruit). The most common way people enjoy this fruit is by cutting off the skin so you can scoop out the flesh with a spoon. You could also use your fingers to peel it like an orange or banana—but if you do that, make sure you wash your hands after eating!

It has many uses beyond being just a tasty treat: pitayas can also be used as hair dye at home (we’ll talk more about this later), colorant for paints and cosmetics; even in some countries like Mexico they use them as an alternative medicine against cancer!

Dragon fruit

Dragon fruit is a fruit that is native to tropical areas and is a cactus fruit. It has a red flesh, with white seeds. Also known as pitaya, this fruit is also known as a symbol of good luck in many Asian cultures. The dragon fruit’s sweet taste and crunchy texture make it an appealing choice for snacking or adding to your smoothies!


Rambutan is a tropical fruit that comes from southeast Asia, specifically Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a roundish red fruit with white hairs all over it, which gives it an interesting look.

The taste of rambutan is sweet and sour; this makes it unique and unlike other fruits. The seed inside the shell is large and resembles a lychee nut, but it tastes sweeter than a lychee nut!

Rambutans are available during summer months due to their tropical climate requirements (they need warm temperatures).


Mangosteen is a tropical fruit that grows in Southeast Asia and is also known as the “Queen of Fruit.” It has a thick peel, which makes the mangosteen difficult to eat and digest, but once you get past that barrier, you’ll find delicate white flesh that’s juicy and sweet.

Mangosteen contains lots of vitamins A, C and E. It also has fiber and antioxidants. In fact, mangosteens rank among the highest in antioxidant properties among fruits worldwide!

Miracle Fruit

Miracle fruit is a small red berry that doesn’t look like much, but it’s got the power to change your world. This fruit is actually known by many names, including miracle fruit and miraculous berry. It’s also known as Synsepalum dulcificum, or synozoa (though these are actually two different trees).

Miracle fruit tastes sour when eaten on its own but contains an active ingredient called miraculin which binds to your taste buds and causes sour foods to taste sweet! The best way to eat a miracle fruit is by slicing it up into thin pieces and popping them in your mouth one at a time. You can also get creative with this—try dipping fries or chips into lemon juice before eating them for an extra-sweet treat!

If you’re looking for health benefits from eating miracle fruits, we’ve got those covered too! Miracle fruits are high in fiber, vitamins A through C (and E!), magnesium, iron—the list goes on! There isn’t any scientific evidence that miracle fruits cure disease or help prevent cancer but who knows? Maybe someday there will be more studies done on this amazing plant…


Soursop is a tropical fruit that’s best known for its floral aroma and creamy white flesh. It’s one of the most popular fruits in South America, where it’s called guanábana or graviola. You might know it as cherimoya—the Spanish word for “custard apple.” Whatever you call it, soursop is an interesting addition to your fruit bowl:

The round, green fruit has a soft, creamy white flesh that’s sweet, sour and a little bit spicy. It tastes like an unusual combination of banana and pineapple with hints of strawberry or lemonade thrown in for good measure! Soursops are pretty high in calories (about 100 grams contains about 350 calories), but they’re also packed with other nutrients including vitamin C, potassium and fiber—all great reasons to give them a try!


Starfruit is a tropical fruit that looks like a star, and it’s also known as carambola. Starfruit is rich in vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, calcium and zinc.

The flesh of the starfruit is sweet but tart and can be eaten raw or cooked with other fruits or vegetables.


The jackfruit is a fruit that’s closely related to the fig, guava and mulberry. It’s native to India and Southeast Asia, but nowadays it can be found all over the world.

Jackfruit has an oblong shape with a hard shell and thick skin that will take some effort to crack open. Once you do get the shell off though, there are fleshy green pods inside filled with sweet yellow seeds (which can be eaten as well).

The taste varies depending on what type of jackfruit you’re eating — some varieties have more of an apple flavor while others taste more like mangoes. Whatever your preference is, one thing remains clear: jackfruits are delicious!

In addition to being delicious and nutritious, there are many health benefits associated with consuming this fruit regularly (especially when compared against other high-carbohydrate foods such as breads or cereals). Some examples include improving digestion due to its fiber content; reducing inflammation thanks largely in part by vitamin C content; increasing energy levels due primarily because of its high potassium levels.”


Durian is a spiky fruit native to Southeast Asia. It’s known for its strong smell, which has been likened to pig manure and has been described as “the smell of death.” The fruit is considered so pungent that it was once banned from hotels in Singapore and Hong Kong. Despite its reputation, durian is considered the “king of fruits” by those who enjoy it (and there are many). Durian contains several antioxidants, including vitamin C and carotenoids like beta-carotene and lutein; these antioxidants may help prevent cancer by fighting free radicals in your body.

The flavor of durian is difficult to describe; some people think it tastes like custard or chocolate cake while others describe it as having an odor akin to vomit or cheese gone bad. Even if you didn’t grow up eating this mysterious fruit, we can all agree that they’re pretty darn delicious when used in desserts!
