20 More Fruits You Probably Donít Know

I love fruit and I clearly just canít get enough of them. When I try to imagine what one of these odd fruits taste like, itís almost like trying to imagine a new color. I just canít seem to wrap my mind around something I have never experienced, but that does not mean that I wonít try to experience as many as I possibly can in my lifetime. So, on account of all the omissions that were listed on the previous top 20 fruits you probably donít know, I decided to include them and make the rest of the entries a bit more global. There are hundreds of fruits out there, but as I canít carry on writing lists about all of them, I have settled for a few that I had never heard of and found interesting. Once again, I have not written this list in any special order, but decided on giving the number 1 spot to the most repeated omission.
