Egg fruit’s other nickname, canistel fruit, earned it a spot on our massive list of fruits that start with C. The link to that post is below, if you’re interested.

Elderberries have a similar appearance to grapes, except they have shiny black skin. If you don’t cook them, they can be dangerous to eat.
Despite the potential risk, however, they’re packed with healthy vitamins, including C and B6. Learn more about the healthy properties of elderberries in our post about the benefits of berries.
4. Elephant Apple

Emblic fruit is rife with symbolism and spiritual significance in some types of Buddhism. Some say that the tree was once used to achieve spiritual enlightenment.
You can safely eat it raw or cooked. Some choose to eat it after a meal, too.
6. Emu Apple

The enterprise apple was created specifically to resist many of the diseases that apples are naturally vulnerable to. Furthermore, it has a long six-month shelf life.
