Let’s take a closer look…

1. Fairchild Tangerine

Fairchild tangerines are a combination of the Clementine mandarin and Orlando tangelo. They may not be as good for snacking as clementines, though, because it’s pretty hard to peel them, especially by hand.

2. Farkleberry

Farkleberry may have a funny-sounding name, but it’s still quite edible – if you can tolerate its bitterness. Usually, animals eat it more than people.

3. Fascell Mango

Fascell mango originally came from the sunny state of Florida. It was named after the person who first grew it, Michael Fascell.

It’s shaped more like an apple, and has a sweet flesh without fiber in it.

4. Fazli Mango

Fazli is a type of mango that comes from India. There, people frequently use it to make a type of jam or pickles. It’s starting to get imported more and more, so it might one day become more common around the world.

5. Fe’i Banana

Most people probably only know about the Cavendish banana, which is the type you see most often in grocery stores today. But there are many other types of banana, including the Fe’i.

This banana grows on islands in the Pacific and has a unique appearance. Rather than being long and yellow, it’s stubby and orange.  

6. Feijoa

Feijoa is a South American fruit that tastes like a mix of pineapple and apple. It’s very juicy, with a smell that’s reminiscent of perfume.

7. Fibrous Satinash Fruit

The fibrous satinash fruit comes from Indonesia and Australia. People grow the tree specifically for its fruit, which makes jam.

8. Fig

Figs are fruits that grow largely in the Middle East. It is one of the oldest fruits cultivated by mankind, and you can find references to it in ancient Greek writings by Aristotle.

If you haven’t already, you should give it a try. You can read our guide to what a fig tastes like for more information.

9. Finger Lime

The finger lime grows in Australia, which is why its scientific name is citrus australasica. Its nickname, finger, results from its shape, which is long and thin.

11. Florentine Citron

12. Florida Strangler Fig

Its intimidating name makes sense if you know how the Florida strangler fig grows. The seeds germinate in the canopy of a different tree, where it grows large enough to eventually kill the hosting tree.

Despite its frightening moniker, though, it is an edible fruit that was eaten by Native Americans long ago. Some people still eat it today.

13. Fox Grape

The vividly purple fox grape comes from North America and is the parent of many other types of grapes. Many use fox grapes to make wine.
