The term 'fruit' can have different meanings. According to botanical terms, a fruit is a fleshy structure of a plant containing seeds. Most edible fruits are known to us and account for a considerable fraction of our diet.

Generally, fruits are rich in fiber and nutrients which are essential for us. Most fruits are low in calories compared to other food types we consume. Calories in fruits come mostly from the natural sugars they contain. Also, the sweet taste of many raw fruits is a result of these natural sugars.
