1. Walnut Fruit
Chances are, you only think of the nut whenever you hear the word “walnut.” You might be surprised, however, to learn that this plant also grows a fruit. Most people don’t really eat the fruit part, though.

Water apples are actually small, bell-shaped berries with a crispness to their texture. Because they grow best in climates with large amounts of rain, they tend to thrive in tropical areas.
3. Water Lemon
Water lemons don’t really look like the lemons you’re used to. Instead, they have a soft green hue that fades into a lighter yellowish-white on the end. Also unlike lemons, their flavor is rather mild.
