Fruits that start with Q

Now, I am going to tell you the beneficial properties of all the fruits that start with Q for you to savor them up.

1. Quince

The beneficial properties of quince and its taste are different from other fruits. Quince cannot boast of the glossy beauty of apples, nor the juicy sweetness of pears, but how fragrant it is! This is one of the few fruits that cannot always be eaten raw, the quince is very hard, but we also need it, and our health. Yes, quince contains moderate amounts of vitamin C and copper, as well as small amounts of B vitamins, iron, potassium, and magnesium, but with very few calories!

2. Quararibea cordata

The fruit is also known as ‘South American Sapote’. They are covered with a velvety dense and thick skin, is medium-sized for the tropics, reaching 8 cm in diameter and 600 g by weight. The pulp is yellow, aromatic, soft, in consistency, it can be compared with persimmon, but it contains more dietary fiber. The taste of the fruit is described as a mixture of melon and mango. In the middle, there are 2-5 oblong seeds, which are fixed by these fibers to the base of the fruit.

3. Queen Anne Cherries

The other name of these cherries is ‘Royal Anne’. They look just like the Rainer Cherry and the only factor that distinguishes Queen Anne from Rainer is their taste, The Rainer berries taste sweet while the Queen berries have a slightly tart taste.

5. Quenepa

The fruits are the size of very large grapes. They are round and green and grow in bunches. The skin of the fruit is thin but firm and can be easily removed. The pulp is yellow-pink, soft, like that of a lychee. The taste is tart but sweet. How does this fruit eat? We clean it, put it in the mouth, and suck out the tender pulp until we feel the bone. By the way, be careful, Quenepa juice can stain your clothes.


6. Quinault Strawberry

They are bigger and softer than the normal strawberry and they weigh around 15-20 g. They are a combination of sweet and sour. The ruby-red fruits are very enticing and you can help but savor them when you see them. They could be eaten fresh or used in jams or desserts.
